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