City discuss move for Messi

Manchester City are crunching the numbers ahead of a possible move for Lionel Messi.

The Argentine is reportedly disgruntled at Barcelona after the club went a season without a trophy for first time since 2007/08.

ESPN says City understand a deal for Messi would be complicated but want to organise their finances should an opportunity arise.

Barca are sticking with their demand that clubs meet Messi’s release clause of €700m.

However, it is believed there are some members of the Barca board who believe they could use the money from Messi’s sale to reinvest in a team that clearly needs rebuilding.

Inter Milan have also strongly been linked with the 33-year-old, with PSG another option.

Messi has spent his entire career at Barcelona and just the mention of his possible exit from the club has sent shock waves around the footballing world. -Tribalfootball
