Manchester City Denies Lionel Messi’s Bid

In another twist, Manchester City has denied claims that they are said to bid a world record €300m for star forward Lionel Messi.

Reports earlier said the Barcelona star and Manchester City have held talks as they look to bring the five-time Ballon d’Or to the Etihad but according to Barcelona-based newspaper Mundo Deportivo, officials at City have confirmed they are not interested in Messi.

French broadcaster Canal Plus reported that Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al-Nahyan already started preparations for a bid for Messi on Friday.

However, Mundo Deportivo discards such claims saying that was a wrong information coming out of broadcaster BeIN Sport.

Lionel Messi, being the face of Barcelona, losing the Argentine will be a big blow for the Catalan, while it’s a great relief for the Blaugrana at the moment, the transfer saga is far from ending.
