Lionel Messi transfer rumors are bursting at the seams after he reportedly told Barcelona he finally wants to leave, and now Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are teasing fans over the possibility using just Fall Guys. 

The game has surged in popularity of late, with over a million people following its quirky Twitter account and thousands dropping into the action looking for their first win.

Alongside that short success story for developers, Mediatonic, in the world of football Barcelona appear to be at a crossroads. A big crossroads as well, with ESPN, The New York Times, and many other major outlets reporting the Argentinian has requested to end his contract, after suffering an embarrassing 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.

With the bidding war potentially going to fly off the charts, there’s one team (and one manager) in particular that’s being linked strongly. Man City, and Pep Guardiola.

Could a new Man City themed skin be headed to Fall Guys? Or, could Messi be headed to the Premier League.

Messi Manchester City rumors

Pep enjoyed tremendous success managing the Catalan club, where he led teams to two European Cups, three La Ligas, and even scooped World’s Best Coach a couple of times too.

Naturally, fans think the Spaniard may be eyeing a reunion with Messi and may take him to Manchester in the transfer window. With fans obviously in disbelief at the prospect, and likely searching online for any information they can get on the possibility of seeing Messi in sky blue next season, their Twitter account is having quite the field day.

On August 26, their esports account tweeted a picture of a Fall Guys character with the head hidden. Their caption stated: “Who do you think our new Man City signing is?” It was later retweeted by the main account.

The tweet stated the unknown player was “out of this world” with a goat emoji. Goat… Could it be?

The chances of Messi actually getting announced in this way is very unlikely, and any potential transfer is just speculation at this stage anyway.

Man City x Fall Guys crossover skin revealed

One of the great things about the admin running the Fall Guys account is their appreciation for crossover designs. Many high profile influencers and companies have been sending in their own, which have been shared – like Ninja, G2 Esports, Mr Beast, and more.

Now, Man City have pulled out their own and we can’t work out if it’s cute or utterly terrifying.

Exclusive skin coming soon?

What Man City have achieved here is anticipation around their crossover skin design, not really confirmed anything transfer wise.

This one may be a new and exclusive skin for Fall Guys in the future, similar to that of Portal 2 crossover character released on August 22. Soon enough, football fans might have another costume to select and it looks pretty cool based on the shots we have of it so far.

Though, that’s unconfirmed at the time of writing. Until then, we can all hope we don’t see that big smile too often.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
