The Daily Mail has reported that Manchester City have reportedly offered three of their finest players plus £89.5m to sign Lionel Messi. The club don’t want to be involved in any financial wrangle with Barcelona over Messi’s release clause and have therefore, offered 3 players plus £89.5m to sign the super talented attacker.
City are willing to offer Eric Garcia who recently rejected a contract extension with the club. Gabriel Jesus who is arguably one of the top 10 strikers in the Premier league and the highly rated Bernando Silva who can offer the creativity, flair and even goals.
Some fans might be bracing themselves for the imminent transfer of Lionel Messi while other fans are remonstrating over the news but, the club directors are already making contingency plans.
Barcelona have earmarked Liverpool’s sensational winger Sadio Mane to replace the attacker. The club feel he could provide the spark and goals the Catanlunya giants currently needs to win and compete for major trophies.
So If Messi leaves, Barcelona will get Bernando Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Sadio Mane and Eric Garcia.
