Cadena Cope understands that Manchester City are readying a mega money offer for Barcelona hotshot Lionel Messi.
The Argentine superstar is nearing the end of his contract at Camp Nou that is due to expire in June 2018, and latest reports suggest that he may not be ready to extend his deal.
Namely, Messi has been disappointed by the treatment he has received from the Spanish authorities and he is thinking about leaving Spain altogether.
This is something that Manchester City are looking to exploit as manager Pep Guardiola is eager to get reunited with the 29-year-old at Etihad Stadium.
Former Barcelona executives Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain will be tasked with handling the negotiations with the Catalans and Messi’s representatives.
According to reports, Man City are ready to offer Messi a yearly wage of over €30 million, while making sure he does not encounter any problems with English authorities.
