Manchester City are preparing a bid that will involve three players and €100m cash to Barcelona in their bid to sign Lionel Messi according to reports.
The Argentine superstar has been subject of big money move to various clubs since he told Barcelona hierarchy his decision to leave the club.
Clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Arsenal have all been linked with Lionel Messi.
But if the reports coming out of Spain is anything to go by, Lionel Messi could finally be re-united with Pep Guardiola and his close friend Sergio Kun Aguero.
According to Barcelona based outlet, Sport, Manchester City are considering tabling an offer of €100m + Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus and Eric Garcia for Lionel Messi.
Eric Garcia who has just one year left on his Manchester City deal has been linked with a return move back to Barcelona.
Gabriel Jesus could be a good cover for Barcelona with the eminent departure of Luis Suarez and Bernardo Silva could be an instant hit for the Catalan giants.
It is yet to be seen if Barcelona who wants over £200m for Lionel Messi would accept Manchester City’s offer should it eventually arrive.
