With Lionel Messi's contract at Barcelona expiring next year, Manchester City are now reportedly looking to sign the superstar in January.
After handing in a transfer request following the club's UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich, Messi opted to stay another season at the Camp Nou.
The Argentine could still end up leaving Barcelona as his contract comes to an end in 2021, although the club are reportedly looking to extend.
According to the Daily Star, the Citizens will now consider making a move for the six-time Ballon d'Or in the upcoming January transfer.
It is believed Pep Guardiola's side are favourites to sign Messi if he does decide to leave but the report claims they would only offer cash-strapped Barcelona £15million.

It remains to be seen if the Catalan giants would accept any offer in the January transfer window as they could lose him for free when the season ends.
City's Football Operations Manager, Omar Berrarda, recently revealed the club would be able to handle the Argentine's finances.
