Lionel Messi has been in the spotlight for the last few days, after his decision to inform Barcelona that he wants to leave the team.
In fact, in a short period of time, various scenarios have been released as regard to the next team that the Argentine star will continue his career in. Some of them are Man. City, Inter, Man.United and Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Manchester City is the dominant team for “Leo”.
In this regard, in its recent publication, the Catalan newspaper Sport, announced that Manchester City intends to make the Argentine striker the richest athlete on the planet, if he leaves Barcelona.
Specifically, the “Citizens”‘ proposal to Messi is to play for the next three years in the Premier League and then for another two years in the MLS with the New York FC.
As for the money he will get, it will be up to 100 million euros, while when he moves to the USA the Argentine will receive a bonus of 250 million Euros, which, however, he can not receive earlier due to restrictions of the Financial Fair Play that City faces.
According to other sources from Spain, Messi has accepted this proposal, but in order for it to materialize, the issue with the compensation that Barcelona is asking for must be resolved.
The announcement of La Liga
Finally, it is worth noting that while the Argentine claims that he is free because he can “break” his contract unilaterally as stipulated in it and did not go to the tests for coronavirus in the training ground in the morning, Barcelona also has the support LaLiga in its own contract data claims.
According to the organizing authority, the clause of 700 million Euros is still active, just as Barcelona administration has pointed out to the footballer.
Thus, Messi cannot be deleted from the files of the organizing authority, unless the amount included in the agreement between the team and the footballer in Catalonia is repaid!
