Man City to try and sign Messi

Manchester City are preparing a staggering £359m bid for Lionel Messi on the off chance he wants out of Barcelona, according to AS.

While the likelihood of the Argentine leaving the club is slim, City  are undeterred and sources within the club claim “serious conversations have been held” with Messi’s entourage around a possible move.

The Manchester side is looking to set up a new transfer record following Neymar’s 222 m record move to Paris-Saint Germain.

However, it’s worth mentioning, that it will be too hard to persuade both Messi and Barcelona to accept this move.
