Barca star plans City move

Lionel Messi is seriously considering a ‘fresh start’ at Manchester City next summer.

The 30-year-old is out of contract at Barca next summer and could sign for City in January and join for free in July. And Messi is torn over signing a new contract at the Nou Camp or beginning a new chapter in his career in Manchester.

Messi has told friends he is unconvinced about Barca’s long-term plan after Neymar’s exit and the appointment of Ernesto Valverde as coach.

However, negotiations with Barca have been ongoing for 18 months but the deal remains unsigned and City officials have met with Messi’s representatives on several occasions  making it clear they want him.

The Citizens  are understood to have offered a £40 million signing-on fee and a five-year deal worth over £500,000 per week.
