The whole scene with the left-footed magician gives City a reason to hope for the unthinkable, while there are other facts that allow the English champions to dream. Recently, Blaugrana president Josep Maria Bartomeu revealed that Messi has a clause in his contract that allows him to be released in the final every season without giving a single euro.
City, or any other team that wants to shake up the planet, must first break the piggy bank and commit to money in the future, as the six-time Golden Ball winner earns about 6 million euros a year. The Manchester club has spent. 65bn on transfers over the last 1.5 years, so, logically speaking, it won't matter if it's liquid to acquire one of the top players ever.

David Luiz deified Arteta
An interesting interview was given by David Luiz. Speaking on the Arsenal site, the Brazilian defender explained the differences between Mikel Arteta and Unai Emery. The Spanish coach has taken over the bench of the gunners and has already managed to beat his player.
Although Arsenal have just three wins in nine games with their new coach, David Luiz has only good things to say about Arteta, regarding the mood in the locker room.
"It's better to sleep four hours happy than eight hours sad. When you are happy, your results will be ten times better. For me, this is true not only in football, but also in life. Arteta managed to bring joy back to the players and that is the most important thing. It's great to work with him. He tries to show us his ideas, his goals. He wants to make Arsenal great again and that's why he works hard every day. I enjoy this job, since I always played in teams that chased the top. Besides, Arteta worked with Pep, which is very important for everyone. I'm sure he will soon be among the top. "
Then David Luiz talked about how Arteta perceives football and spoke with equally flattering words about his coach.
"His philosophy is exactly the same as mine. He thinks like me and that's why it's easy to assimilate his ideas. We try to have possession and as soon as we lose the ball, we immediately run to win it again. Mikel tries every day to show us all the details, so that we can improve quickly. He loves football, he loves his job, so he conveys his enthusiasm to every player. "
Inexperienced Arteta has in his hands the difficult project of Arsenal. His players appreciate his work, but it remains to be seen on the pitch that something good is happening in the London team.
