Manchester United has made a signing. For three Ole Gunnar Solskjaer players, Lionel Messi would be bad news.
Lionel Messi, the Barcelona forward, is a target for Manchester United.
Manchester United are interested in signing Lionel Messi, who was released by Barcelona unexpectedly. The forward is presently available on a free transfer, and despite having already signed Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, the Red Devils could be on the verge of making another deal. While everyone linked with the club would be ecstatic, three players could be forgiven for being nervous.
United have discussed a deal with Messi’s camp, according to Ian McGarry of Reach PLC’s Transfer Window podcast.
“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.”
With that in mind, Express Sport will now look at three players who would be hampered by a potential Messi transfer.
