TyC Sports: PSG outbid Manchester City for Lionel Messi

Paris Saint-Germain have stormed into the race for wantaway Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi with a huge offer, TyC Sports claims.

Manchester City are favourites to sign Messi, 33, who would reunite with Pep Guardiola in England.

However, the word from Argentina this afternoon is that PSG have offered Messi an even bigger salary than he earns now.

In addition to that, the Parisians are willing to pay Barcelona a bigger transfer fee than City.

TyC states that Financial Fair Play would prevent City from putting the same offer on the table that PSG have.

However, Messi is more attracted to City’s project, of which Guardiola and his friend Sergio Aguero are part of.

At PSG, Messi could form a devastating attack with Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Angel di Maria.

However, Ligue 1 is not as appealing to the Argentine as the Premier League, which may factor into his decision.

Messi is believed to be more motivated by a new challenge than money, which should give City an advantage.
