Manchester City continues to want Lionel Messi in their ranks, but the club has lowered its offer by as much as 200 million euros, according to Sun. Last summer, the English club had offered the Barcelona star 700 million euros in the form of salaries for a period of five years, but now the offer has been changed to 500 million for eight years. Citizens have revised their proposal due to the ongoing crisis over the pandemic, as well as the fact that Leo will be one year old when he eventually comes to them. Before the start of the season, Messi tried to leave Barcelona with a free transfer, citing a clause in his contract. However, this did not happen and he stayed at the Camp Nou, but his contract expired.

If the Argentine agrees to strengthen the team of Joseph Guardiola, it will probably be in two seasons + 12 months. He will then be expected to move for another 24 months to New York City, which has the same owner as Manchester City - City Football Group. The package offer of the leader in the Premier League includes an 8-year commitment, which means that after the end of his football career Messi should become an ambassador of City Football Group around the world. It is possible that a clause will be inserted in the agreement for one season as a player in India or the UAE. For comparison, the striker is currently in the final months of the contract with Bar?a, which he signed in 2017. For these four years he will have received about 555 million euros.
