Pep Guardiola has admitted that he 'doesn't know' if Manchester City will snap up Lionel Messi in 2021 on a free transfer after failing to land him this summer.

However, Messi would make a shock U-turn earlier this month as he refused to take the Spanish club to court over his contract release clause.

Speaking ahead of City's clash with Wolves on Monday, Guardiola insisted that he doesn't "have to explain anything" over Messi not moving to the Premier League club.

The 49-year-old Spaniard explained during a news conference: "I think I don't have to explain anything.

Messi, whose current Barcelona deal will expire next summer, will turn 34 by the time City have the potential option to sign the six-time Ballon d'Or winner.

City have strengthened their squad this summer with the additions of Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake as Guardiola's side attempts to dethrone defending champions Liverpool.

Guardiola insisted that he is "more than satisfied" with the business City have done in the summer, despite the club still having the option to bring in new players before the window shuts.

"I'm more than satisfied with what I've had and I know the club does everything to do their best, not just for me [but] for the team," he said.

"If we have to stay with the players, I'll be happy. I've never before or in the future will I complain. I'm lucky to have these players and that's all."
