Man City will pay £100m for Messi

Manchester City are preparing a £100 million offer to lure Barcelona star Lionel Messi to the Etihad in the coming summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

According to The Sun, Manchester City have told Barcelona they are prepared to pay a record £100m to sign Lionel Messi.

Negotiations between City and Barcelona reportedly took place at the end of last month, but no bid was made.

Messi is yet to agree a contract extension with Barcelona – Neymar and Luis Suarez have recently signed – and City are prepared to offer him £800,000-a-week.
