Josep Guardiola is considering adding a 33-year-old Argentine star. The English club will address the Barcelona captain with a proposal this winter.
Manchester City are preparing to offer a contract to Lionel Messi for the Barcelona striker. According to the British media, Manchester City will address the Argentine with a proposal in January 2021.
The captain of the Catalan club, whose contract expires next summer, can already start negotiations with the interested clubs six months before the expiration of the contract.
The English club wants to take advantage of the uncertainty caused by the resignation of President Josep Maria Bartomeu and the Board of Directors in Barcelona. Manchester City is trying to get the Argentine superstar ahead of the transfer.
It is expected that Omar Berrada, the head of the City transfer department, will take care of the pre-contract agreement with Lionel. Under the contract, Messi will spend 3 years in the English Premier League and another 2 years at City’s subsidiary club, New York City.
As you know, Lionel Messi has been defending the honor of Barcelona since 2003. Together with the Catalan team, the Argentine forward won 34 titles. During the last transfer window, Leo Club wanted to replace him but later decided to stay.
