Numbers on Manchester United shirts With a ‘contract offer lodged,’ Lionel Messi might wear.
Manchester United is rumored to be interested in Barcelona legend Lionel Messi.
Following Lionel Messi’s shock departure from Barcelona, Manchester United is said to have made him a contract offer. After that, the Argentina international is a free agent, and while Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing him, a transfer to Old Trafford isn’t completely out of the question. What a bold move it would be.
On Reach PLC’s Transfer Window podcast, Ian McGarry stated that United had made a contract offer to 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.
“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.”
As a result, Express Sport will now look at possible shirt numbers for the Argentine if he moves to Old Trafford.
