Xavi: De Bruyne is Man City’s Messi’ says Guardiola’s side have ‘Barcelona DNA’

Pep Guardiola has added “Barcelona DNA” to Manchester City, says Xavi, with Kevin De Bruyne playing the Lionel Messi role.
Despite boasting a trophy-laden CV from spells at Camp Nou and with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, Guardiola ended his first season in England without silverware.
He has, however, overseen a remarkable transformation in 2017-18, with City currently on an 18-game winning run which has carried them 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Belgian midfielder De Bruyne has played a leading role in a period of domination at the Etihad Stadium, with Xavi comparing his value to the cause to that of Argentine talisman Messi at Barca.
“Pep’s teams win as teams, but even the most special sides need that player to look to when they need something special,” the World Cup winner said in The Mirror.
“At Barcelona we had it with Messi and this team Manchester City have it with De Bruyne.
“Every time he has the ball, you get the feeling that he is going to do something special with it.”
