Kevin De Bruyne has claimed that he is not moved about Lionel Messi's potential arrival at Manchester City next summer.
The Etihad outfit recently insisted that they have the financial capability of landing the Barcelona forward in 2021.
Messi agreed to see out the remainder of his contract until next summer after changing his mind about leaving the Camp Nou.
But when De Bruyne was asked about teaming up with the six-time Ballon d'Or winner, the Belgian midfielder played down the speculation.
De Bruyne told Sky Sports:
"I don't really care to be honest.
"If he comes, it's a good thing, if he doesn't there are enough good players at the club who I enjoy playing with, so that is not for now."
The former Chelsea midfielder also revealed that he is open to signing a lucrative new deal with the Citizens despite having two and half years left to run on his current contract.
De Bruyne added:
"I am very happy at the club, I can say now I have not spoken once to the club so I don't know why people are saying I have already agreed to something.
"I always told everybody I am really happy at the club and I feel comfortable so if the people at the club want to talk to me I am open to that and we will see what happens.
"But at the moment nothing has happened so I just get on with the way it goes."
De Bruyne will be on parade for his home country when they visit the Wembley Stadium for a top-of-the-table Nations League clash on Sunday, October 11.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Man City are highly favourites to sign Lionel Messi next season if the Argentine refuses to sign a new deal with the club, according to chief operating officer Omar Berrada.
The Etihad outfit were leading in the race to sign the 33-year-old after he submitted a transfer request to leave the Camp Nou this summer.
Several mouthwatering offers were made by the oil-rich Premier League club but Braca insisted that Messi's £630million release clause must be met before he could leave the club.
