Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo believes Lionel Messi could be tempted to move to the Premier League within two years.

Negredo has made a successful transition into English football since his summer signing from Sevilla, scoring four league goals and helping City qualify for the Champions League knockout stages.

Messi has often stated his desire to finish his top flight career with Barcelona, where he made his senior debut in 2004, but Negredo insists the Argentine could join the recent influx of players moving to England from Spain's La Liga.
