If PSG are currently studying the feasibility of recruiting Lionel Messi, the Parisian club will probably not be able to compete with Manchester City.
Who of Manchester city or PSG will afford Lionel messi the coming days ? While the six-fold Golden Ball has officially asked to leave the FC Barcelona, Tuesday, the Parisian club has since engulfed in the breach. Leonardo reportedly explained to Messi’s entourage that a contractual offer was going to be presented to him, as As explained on Wednesday. But City is much more advanced in this file than PSG.
The point is that Lionel Messi has very little chance of getting a contract termination at FC Barcelona, as he requested in his registered letter sent on Tuesday. In his contract which binds him until 2021, “La Pulga” has the possibility of leaving the Catalan club at the end of each end of the season, but it is specified that the player must inform the management before June 10 and this date has remained unchanged despite the extension of the 2019-2020 season until August …
The big deal imagined by Man City
Lionel Messi determined to leave, Barça will therefore raise the stakes. In this little game, PSG may not have a chance against Manchester City. The two clubs are obviously limited by the rules of financial fair play but, while Leonardo is doing everything he can to target the next affordable recruits, at 30 or 40 million euros, the Citizens can imagine themselves offering the ‘equivalent of 200 million to the FCB.
City’s first offer could be: 100 million euros plus 3 players, namely Eric Garcia, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus, according to Sport. And, in addition to the young Catalan defender, the Portuguese leader and the Brazilian striker, Barça could very well claim a 4th player. In any case, Lionel Messi would have already said yes to Pep Guardiola and the proposal of PSG could not change anything in the case.
