Barcelona legend Lionel Messi has said that a contract offer has been submitted for him to join Manchester United.
Lionel Messi, the Barcelona star, has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Lionel Messi, a Barcelona legend, is currently a free agent. In a news conference on Friday, Joan Laporta confirmed that he will not be staying at the Nou Camp. Despite Paris Saint-Germain being the frontrunners, Manchester United is said to have made a formal contract offer to the Argentina international.
Ian McGarry recently reported on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window podcast that United had made a contract offer to Messi’s entourage.
“Paris Saint-Germain are in pole position to recruit Messi, offering him a deal worth roughly £63.5 million (€75 million) over two years and then enabling him to depart for free,” he added.
“As we all know, he wants to play Major League Soccer in America, and it is something he is clearly interested in.
“Manchester United, on the other hand, is putting themselves in the mix.
“They don’t believe they’re as strong a possibility for the player’s signature as PSG is right now.
“However, conditions have been discussed with Messi’s representation with respect to a contract that would pay roughly £42 million (€50 million) gross in salary.

“Of course, there would be agent fees to his father Jorge, as well as the signing-on fee and salary, all of which would be weighed against Messi’s clear worth and value in the world of football, as well as the commercial potential that having Messi on your side may bring.
“I wonder whether Manchester United, rather than being about the money, would be a more legitimate and successful challenge for Leo Messi the player.”
And Messi has already shown interest from Manchester United.
With his Barcelona future uncertain at the time, the attacker was linked with a move to Sir Alex Ferguson’s side when he was 20.
And he responded to the rumors by stating that he was content at the Nou Camp, saying, “I’m pleased in Barcelona.” I mean, why wouldn’t I be?
“I’ve realized my ambition. It is the best club in the world, and its players are the best in the world.
