Manchester City considering a £500,000-a-week move for Messi

The yet to be crown English Premiership League champion, Manchester City are currently considering a £500,000-a-week in wages move for Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi when his contract expires in January.

Messi’s contract runs out at the end of the season, and the Argentina international hasn’t yet declared his next move.

The Sun reports that Messi is open to a move to City, with the 33-year-old interested in a one-year deal worth £25 million, including the option of a second year at the end.

The move would make Messi the best-paid player in Premier League history, and it seems that City boss Pep Guardiola is ready to make it happen after having so far waited in the wings to see how contract negotiations played out.

Barcelona have offered their talisman a new deal, though it is believed to be on reduced terms. Barcelona are still hopeful Messi will stay at Camp Nou.

City are one of only two clubs, alongside Paris Saint-Germain, that have the financial muscle to be able to even consider trying to tempt Messi away from Barcelona, but Guardiola’s relationship with the Argentine could prove pivotal.

Manchester City, rivals, Manchester United and Chelsea have all lodged interest with Kane’s representatives, but it remains to be seen whether any club will offer the £150m it will likely take to convince Spurs to let him leave.
