Manchester United already has their own Lionel Messi, which might save the Glazers millions of dollars.
Manchester United has been linked with a move for Barcelona legend Lionel Messi, but they may already have their own version of the Barcelona legend.
Following Lionel Messi’s surprise departure from Barcelona, Manchester United has surfaced as a possible suitor. The Glazers may be tempted to give up the chase due of the Argentina international’s exorbitant wage demands. The Red Devils already have a player who has been compared to the Argentina international in Amad.
On Reach PLC’s Transfer Window podcast, Ian McGarry reported that United were interested in signing Messi.
“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.
DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE AN EXPERT IN SPORT? “And certainly there would be agent’s fees to his father Jorge, as well as the signing-on fee and salary, which will be regarded in terms of Messi’s evident worth and value in world football, but also the commercial value of having Messi on your team can generate,” says the author.
“I wonder whether Manchester United, rather than being about the money, would be a more legitimate and effective challenge for Leo Messi the player.” However, any deal for Messi would be complex.
The Barcelona legend expects big money from whatever he joins next, and given how United has spent great money on marquee acquisitions who have disappointed in the past, a transfer to Old Trafford would be difficult.
And, in Amad, United already boasts a player who has been compared to Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
