Man City pre­pare world record £250M bid for un­happy Messi

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Manch­ester City’s own­ers are ready to break the world trans­fer record for un­set­tled Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The Manch­ester Evening News says City have been linked with a stag­ger­ing £250m deal for Barcelona ace Lionel Messi.

The Ar­gen­tinian is yet to sign a con­tract ex­ten­sion at the Nou Camp and re­ports in Spain sug­gest he could be tempted by a new chal­lenge at the end of the sea­son.

The 26-year-old has been at Barca for his whole ca­reer but this sea­son has been a tur­bu­lent one for the Cata­lan club. They are strug­gling to cling on in the La Liga ti­tle race and this week were beaten by arch ri­vals Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey fi­nal.
