Manchester City fans are looking thrilled here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim they could be in line to sign Lionel Messi of all people!
The Argentine forward has previously declared his desire to end his career at the Camp Nou.
However, as Messi’s tax evasion scandal worsens, he could be looking for a way out of Spain and Barcelona leaving a whole host of elite clubs interested with Manchester City leading that list.
Of course as one of our punters notes, Messi could just as easily decide that life at the Camp Nou is for him after all, once the situation surrounding his illegal activities wears off.
Given Manchester City and fellow suitors Paris Saint-Germain are already in trouble with UEFA over their failure to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, purchasing Messi could well be little more than a pipedream.
Or one that will cause them to sell all their other players at the very least!
Manchester City fans. Do you have a hope in hell of signing Messi or will he opt to go somewhere else in Europe if he ever does leave Barcelona? Let us know your thoughts below.
