Manchester City agreed to pay 100 million euros to get Messi
Manchester City agreed to pay 100 million euros to get Messi and the top three footballers in the team. Such news is from the Spanish media ‘Sport’. According to Sport, the English club wants to pay three footballers Bernardo Silva, Eric Garcia, and Gabriel Jesus with 100 million euros in cash in exchange for Lionel Messi. And after such an offer, Man City has taken another step to get Messi in the team.
Manchester City’s idea is to keep FIFA’s ‘financial fair play’ right. The English club was banned from European football by UEFA for two years this year for spending more than it earns. Later they got the verdict of the court with the bond. So this time the English club does not want to be in danger again by spending a large amount of money to get Messi in the team.
In that case, the only way to get Messi in the team is to exchange players. That’s why the idea of including Jesus, Silva, and Garcia in the deal is going on. Barca has already targeted Jesus. The Spanish club wants to replace Suarez with the Brazilian. And since Guardiola’s plan does not have defender Garcia, Barca wants to make this defender the successor of Gerard Pique.
Last Tuesday, Messi announced his decision to leave Barcelona via a bureau fax (certified letter). Messi has asked permission to leave the club without any hassle and without any transfer fee. Under the terms of the current contract, the Argentine forward has the opportunity to leave the club as a free agent at the end of each season
