According to latest reports in the Sun, Manchester City are interested in preparing a sensational bid for Lionel Messi in order to reunite him with Pep Guardiola and bring glory to the club as soon as possible.
It is believed Manchester City and Barcelona representatives had a meeting last month regarding the player’s future, and there are claims that despite it not being formal and decisive, it was positive to say the least.
City are ready to touch the £100m emphatic mark in order to bring the Argentine and his skills to the club. And with their current season not going according to plan after the latest 4-0 loss to Everton – which now has them 5th in the table – such a deal might make sense to save their future seasons and propel them to the top of the pile in the time to come.

Barcelona are themselves in a tricky situation with Messi at the moment, after facing bills to pay and his contract on the verge of ending, and this might be the perfect time for a club to step in and take away the magician at the right price.
Despite rumours of him being linked with United, City seem to be the team ready to go all guns blazing and rope in Messi to the Premier League to wear the blue of Manchester.
