Man City are ready to take the services of Barcelona captain Lionel Messi this summer in a reciprocal deal,
a Spanish press report revealed on Thursday.
Messi informed the Barcelona manager that he wants to leave the club this summer,
and the news confirms that he is sticking to his decision.
Man City are among the few clubs with the financial capacity to include Messi and are able to pay his annual salary of £95 million.
It is also willing to pay between 100 and 150 million pounds to join his ranks.
Jorge Messi, the father of the Barcelona legend, has already reached out to Manchester City
and could fly to Barcelona next week to speed up negotiations
and find a solution to the clause in the flea contract that gives him the right to leave at the end of the season,
according to the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.
The newspaper pointed out that Manchester City do not mind the inclusion of some of his players in the deal,
such as Eric Garcia, who is considered a target for Barcelona this summer,
as well as Angelino, whom Barça would like to join to strengthen the left side.
She noted that Gabriel Jesus could enter into the deal as he will be a great offensive option at the Camp Nou,
once Luis Suarez leaves.
She stressed that the presence of Pep Guardiola at the head of the technical management of Manchester City,
as well as Sergio Aguero in the attack of the team,
one of the most important reasons for Messi’s desire to play for City,
especially that he has suffered with the first best years as a football player, and the second is a close friend of his.
