Manchester City's chief football operations officer Omar Berrada has responded to questions regarding whether or not the club will make a move for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
As things stand, the Argentine is set to become a free agent when his contract with the Catalan giants expires next month.
There have been no indications as to whether or not the six-time Ballon d'Or winner will sign a new deal with the Blaugrana, while the Barcelona talisman has also been linked with transfers to both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
City's chief football operations officer was asked about a potential move for Messi recently, but steered his answer clear of the Argentine, and added that the club could look for a replacement for Sergio Aguero.
"We are very much focused on our squad. We are very pleased with the success the team has had this year," Berrada was quoted as saying by Goal when asked if the Citizens would try to sign Messi.
"We're looking at areas where we can potentially improve the squad, but if you look at the performance of the team and everything they have done this year, it's not that there is a significant investments that we need to make.
"Perhaps we will look at the striker position because we have a legend like Sergio Aguero leaving. When the season ends on Saturday evening, we will sit down and look at what we want to do in the transfer window."
