“We Have No Plans To Sign Lionel Messi” — Man City
English Premier League side, Manchester City football club have debunked claims that they are making any offer to Lionel Messi, even as the Barcelona forward’s contract will expire at the end of the season.
Messi even though he’s still a Barcelona’s player, has the right to speak to top European clubs and has been heavily linked with several clubs like Manchester City and French Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain.
This week, reports surfaced that City made a revised transfer offer for the Argentine superstar, but the club has come out to deny the reports.
Wealthy City are one of the very few clubs that could afford his salary structure and it was also gathered that a deal could also see Messi play for other sides in the City Football Group – including New York City FC.
We haven’t made any offer for Messi. Either now or last summer and there are no plans to make any” a club official told Goal.com.
Messi will be 34 in June, and will have to wait the season ends to decide his future as whether to extend his Barca’s contract, where he has spent all his entire professional footballing career.
