Manchester City preparing to sign Lionel Messi from Barcelona
Manchester City and United are preparing to sign Messi as Barca chief admits that the club cannot afford Messi.
Yesterday Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau admitted that Barcelona cannot afford to extent Messi’s contract due to financial restriction.Currently Messi has just 18 months left on his deal at the Nou Camp.
This has led to the interest from many clubs including Manchester City and United.Earlier Real Madrid is also interested but Barcelona will not be selling their star to the rivals.
But Manchester City are preparing a huge £100million transfer fee and hand Messi a record £800,000-a-week five-year deal which would top the £500,000-a-week Cristiano Ronaldo gets at Real Madrid.
United are also interested but they lack the sufficient fund to sign him,Jose Mourinho reveled that United are saving their fund for attacking the summer transfer window.
