Manchester City right-back Danilo has urged Manchester City to sign four-time Ballon D’or winner Lionel Messi, Marca reports (via Daily Star).

Danilo, who signed for the Citizens from Real Madrid this summer, admits that the current Premier League leaders already possess a great squad but also that the potential addition of the world’s best player wouldn’t hurt.

Messi is in the last year of his contract at Barcelona as rumours have emerged that he is stalling on signing a renewal due to desires to reunite with Guardiola at City.

“We have a very good squad, but everything can improve.” Danilo said. “Messi is a top player. Of course, I would like to play with him, he is the best.”

Messi was pipped to the FIFA Player of the Year award by Cristiano Ronaldo recently and has already made a point on re-claiming the accolade next year by scoring 12 goals and providing one assist in eight games so far this season.

Meanwhile, City have been impressive in the Premier League as they remain undefeated in nine games, leading journalists to ask Guardiola whether he believes his team can to complete an ‘invincible’ season. Danilo has been particularly impressed by his Brazilian compatriot Gabriel Jesus in the absence of injured Sergio Aguero.

“[Gabriel] is Brazilian but I did not know him.” he said, “He surprised me because of his quality and maturity despite being 20 years old.”
