Lionel Messi is currently at Manchester City’s training facilities, but unfortunately not as a representative of the Citizens, despite years of rumours.
The iconic little Argentine is there on national team duty, along with two men who know the surroundings well, Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otamendi.
Argentine take on Italy at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow in a prestige friendly, but in the meantime Messi, 30, has been familiarising himself with the impressive City Football Academy.
And yesterday he and his close friend Kun surprised some of Man City’s stars of tomorrow when they appeared at under-7 and under-8 training sessions.
The wide-eyed youngsters looked awed and excited at seeing City hero Aguero and world superstar Messi in their presence – a moment they’ll never forget.
Here are some photos of the two Argentines with the City kids:
