Latest transfer rumours indicate that English Premier League Club, Manchester City, are set to land Barcelona Superstar, Lionel Messi in an astonishing mega deal.
If the deal pulls through, the Argentine could be paid an astonishing sum of £800,000-a-week to play at the Etihad.
It was gathered that Messi who just returned from an injury is already considering a shock move to England.
According to SunSport, the four-time world footballer of the year’s representatives had interactions with City’s agents for a deal worth around £40MILLION a year.
The 28-year-old superstar would pocket around £32m for playing with the rest paid in image rights and bonuses.
City’s hope has also been boosted as Messi is reportedly willing to dump Barca, a team he has played for 11years, where he currently earns £500,000-a-week until 2018.
Messi is also not happy with the Barcelona management since the team has prioritised the renewal of Neymar’s contract over his.
The absence of Messi due to an ankle injury for over six-weeks has allowed Neymar and Suarez exhibit their talents at the club and Messi feels his growing influence over the team’s success could dwindle.
Moreso, the tax evasion against Leo and his father has also seen Messi review his time in the country.
