It’s reported that Messi has agreed to terms on a deal worth €700m with the City Football Group (CFG), which owns Manchester City.
The deal is reportedly five years in length, including three in England and two with MLS side New York City.
However, signing Messi will not be easy, he still has one-year left on his current contract at Barcelona with a release clause of €700m.
City’s hope is that Messi’s camp can negotiate a deal which would see him leave the Camp Nou on a free transfer.
If this happens, a move to City would be firmly on the cards and the English giants have already agreed financial terms with the Argentine.
