Man City to offer Barcelona €100m plus three first-team stars for Lionel Messi – report

Manchester City are preparing to offer Barcelona three first-team players alongside a €100m fee to sign Lionel Messi, report Diario Sport.

It is claimed that such is the English’s side intention to land the Argentine star, they are willing to offer striker Gabriel Jesus, Portugal international Bernardo Silva and central defender Eric Garcia – who came through Barca’s La Masia youth academy – to the Catalan club.

It follows directly from a report in Marca that Man City’s offer to Messi was a three-year contract with informal negotiations already opened between the parties.

Whilst Messi is intent on leaving as a free agent, the Blaugrana refute the legality of this claim and are referring to his €700m release clause.

With this in mind, the report claims that City are offering €100m plus three of their first-team players in order to secure the 33-year-old.

It is claimed that City are the club best placed to land the Argentine due to his personal relationship with boss Pep Guardiola, while he also shares a close bond with Argentina international teammate Sergio Aguero.

City are said to be optimistic about completing a deal for Messi this summer.

    Get Messi and Messi has asked neymar to join him at Manchester City we would win the Champions league.

  3. Mohamed Elzeki says:

    I think Messi’s best years are over. Lately he has been cuffing out the ball and caused Barca to defend so many rebound attacks. Maybe he realized that he needs better defence behind him to be able to perform at his lower level without impacting the team. Possibly MC is offering him that better defence.

      You don’t know a player of high profile. You should have agree that their is no better player presently like messi in the world football history,and,so, still remained the best, intact no manager can afford to loose his type and also the club

    I think it is time for Lionel Messi to make his way if he want to because Messi has play his part for us as a club, even though it is difficult for us right now to let him leave but we are more then a club and no player is more then our club (Barcelona)

    100 million euro, plus Gabriel Jesus, Eric Garcia and Angelino is a no brainier. I will do it in a heart-beat.
    These are 3 quality young players who can be starters from day one.
    Do it Bartomeu. Get rid of Messi and Suarez once for ever.

  7. Damir Markota says:

    Barcelona does not need that 700 million release clause fee. G.Jesus, E.Garcia, Angelino and 100 million euro is more than enough for 33 y.o. washed veteran like Messi. Do it Bartomeo.
