Manchester City-Wolverhampton Preview

Manchester City have moved on from the Lionel Messi transfer saga, according to Pep Guardiola, whose side kick-off their season against Wolves on Monday.

Messi asked to leave Barcelona in the wake of their 8-2 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals, with City widely tipped as favourites to land the 33-year-old.

However, Messi then announced he had decided to see out the final year of his contract, albeit while accusing president Josep Maria Bartomeu of going back on his word and making the financial cost of any deal for a buying club "impossible".
