According to the reliable Moisés Llorens of ESPN, Manchester City have their calculators out to see how much it would take to sign Lionel Messi without breaking the financial fair play rules. Bringing the Argentine to the Premier League is no longer considered ‘impossible’.
Manchester City knows that the operation is very complicated, but they are studying the feasibility to be prepared in the event that he finally decides to leave Barcelona and that the Catalan club agrees to negotiate his departure for a reasonable price.
Messi ends his contract in 2021 and last week he had met Koeman to inform him that he has doubts of continuing at Barcelona after the disappointments in the Champions League against Bayern Munich, Liverpool, and Rome.
The 33-year-old demanded changes at the club, and even though Quique Setién got replaced with Ronald Koeman, it seems that bigger changes with a convincing sporting project are what Messi demands in the last stage of his career.
The English club has always been attentive to sign the Barcelona legend, especially considering his current situation. As things stand, The Citizens are doing the math to know if his signing would be feasible or not.
