Manchester United has discussed the potential contract with Lionel Messi’s representatives.
According to rumours, Manchester United is interested in signing Lionel Messi on a free transfer.
After consulting with Lionel Messi’s representatives, Manchester United is said to have suggested a contract to him. After Barcelona formally announced his exit on Thursday, Messi is looking for a new team. PSG are the frontrunners to capture the Argentina superstar.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
Due to budgetary constraints in La Liga, Barcelona has been unable to sign Messi to a new deal.
Both parties desired a deal, but the virtually impossible has occurred for the 34-year-old after 17 years with the Nou Camp first squad.
Manchester City has been interested in signing the forward in the past, but Pep Guardiola stated at a press conference on Friday that a deal would not be struck.
However, now that City appears to have ruled themselves out of contention, United’s name has been added to the mix.
Ian McGarry, speaking on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window podcast, claims that United has contacted Messi’s representation.
The Red Devils are said to have offered a two-year contract for £42 million (€50 million).
United have already signed Jadon Sancho for £73 million this summer and are close to signing Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.
They are, however, suddenly interested in Messi, despite PSG leading the way with a far bigger offer.

“Paris Saint-Germain are in pole position to recruit Messi, offering him a contract for roughly £63.5 million (€75 million) gross over two years and then allowing him to depart for free,” McGarry 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, agreements have been discussed with Messi’s representation in relation to a contract worth roughly £42 million (€50 million) gross.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
