Making a candid revelation, Manchester City's talismanic playmaker Kevin De Bruyne bowed to the all-time supremacy of Lionel Messi in the game of soccer. Speaking to the Daily Mail, De Bruyne shared his unfiltered thoughts, sans the usual sports diplomacy, reckoning Messi as the best player the world has ever seen.

"I really don't care," De Bruyne stated. Adding, "If he would have come, it would have helped us because, in my book, he is the best player of all time." His acknowledgement of Messi's legend reflects not just a personal opinion but an understanding of the substantial impact Messi’s potential addition could have had on the team and the business side.

De Bruyne broached upon the hypothetical scenario of Messi joining Manchester City, explaining just how pivotal such a signing could be for the club, both in sports and business terms: "The array of sponsors and finances that Messi would attract are massive. In a certain way, any exorbitant payout to Messi would virtually pay itself back."

Manchester City had indeed rolled out an enticing offer, big enough to keep Messi rooted in Premier League until 2023 before eventually extending his career in the Major League Soccer with New York City. However, as we know, in the realm of soccer, it's the uncertainty that keeps the game thrilling.
