City Ready To Make R6.4bn Messi Move?

Manchester City Ready To Make R6.4bn Lionel Messi Move?

By Kurt Buckerfield - Oct 09, 2017 06:00 PM @KurtLaduma

It is believed that Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are preparing a R6.4 billion world record bid for Lionel Messi if he does not renew his contract at FC Barcelona.

8 Players Who Could Leave Spain For Catalonia

The Argentine is yet to sign a new deal with the Catalan club, and with his current contract expiring in 2018, he could open talks with another club in January.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has been accused of lying about Messi's contract situation on more than one occasion in recent months – he had claimed a few months ago that the Argentine had signed a new deal, only for it to later be discovered that he had not.

According to AS, the Citizens are ready to bid €400 million (R6.4 billion) for the 30-year-old in January if he makes it clear he will not sign an extension at the Camp Nou.

Messi could potentially move for free if he lets his contract expire, but if he does leave in January, a massive transfer fee would be required.

Xavi Reveals What 'P***es' Messi Off

The Argentine has scored 14 goals and assisted a further three strikes in 11 games for Barca so far this season.

Do you think Messi could be tempted to leave Barca? Let us know in the comments section below.

City has players that can turn messi into a goal scoring machine, he wouldn't have to work hard and drop into middle field like he does in barca and Argentina, he could just wait in the box and score goals only, city has players who can help him achieve his level best in terms of scoring

@Mvenya M., even at his finished level, he still outperforms many young, fresh players. That says a lot about him. Perhaps you will look at this and understand why he is called the GOAT.

@#eddie its not about big or small but trying some new challenges and learning some new things and there is aguero at city who happen to be his best friend and there is pep so there is so many reasons for him to leave barca

We have seen that in football there's no loyalty if this is true I'm sure Messi can't resist that temptation
