Lionel Messi and his immediate future they have the world of soccer stopped. The Argentine star contract with Barcelona ends on June 30 and its renewal has not materialized. The above has pending other clubs, which await the decision of 10 to launch in search of their signing.
One of them is the Manchester City, A set that was already interested in him in the last summer market when the player had decided to leave Barcelona. At that time the operation could not be finalized because Bartomeu referred to the termination clause of the footballer and Leo, who considered that this clause was invalid, did not want to enter into a lawsuit with the club. At that time, City was willing to pay a transfer that would be between 50 and 70 million.
The Manchester City, pending of Messi
The English club is now awaiting Messi’s decision. Guardiola is still interested in joining the team for next season, but City will not make any official move until it is known with certainty that Messi wants to leave Barcelona. And in this moment, the Argentine has not made this decision. Meanwhile, in Manchester they prepare the offer in case it is the case to present it.
One of the problems you run into City is that they have to start making the squad for next season and you need to define your market movements. Guardiola needs a striker to replace Kun Agüero, who has already announced that he is leaving the club at the end of the season. And also an important reinforcement for the center of the field. It is evident that signing Messi conditions the rest of the reinforcements for the team.
The City sports leadership is aware that Messi can perform at a very high level in the next two years and they are willing to make an important offer to the player if he decides to leave Barcelona. A contract that would contemplate a few years playing in Manchester and two or three more in another of the franchises that the English club has, which could perfectly be the New York team.
However, in Manchester they are fully aware that there will be competition if Leo leaves Barcelona. AND the great rival will be PSG. The problem that the French club has is that at the moment its sporting project is not fully defined since its two great figures, Neymar and Mbappé, They end their contract in 2022 and do not reach a renewal agreement. On the other hand, City already have a trained and competitive team that will be further strengthened in the summer. Clearly it looks like a more solid project.
