According to the latest report the Premier League giant Manchester City has told the Spanish champions FC Barcelona that they are ready to pay £100million to sign Lionel Messi.
And the 29-year-old Argentine ace and FC Barcelona’s star forward Lionel Messi is yet to agree an extension to his current deal which expires in the summer of 2018 and has been linked with a move away from the La Liga champions FC Barcelona.
But recently the five times ballon d’Or winner admitted that he wishes to remain at Camp Nou for the foreseeable future, but only if the club wants.
As when the Argentina international and FC Barcelona’s forward has been asked whether he would consider moving to England's top flight, Messi told Coach Magazine, "I have always said that Barcelona has given me everything and I am here for as long as they want me to be."
