Man City To Lure Messi With £800,000-a-week Wage
English Premier League side, Manchester City want Lionel Messi and are reportedly willing to pay him a whopping £800,000-a-week to take him to the Etihad.
According to the newspaper The Sun, Mansour bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the owner of Man City, has decided to try and tempt the Barcelona star with scandalously big offer.
The publication assured that sheikh would offer no more and no less than 56 million euros a season to Messi.
It’s an offer of around 800,000 pounds a week, which is more than one million euros – a number, which far outweighs anything paid to any player in the world at the moment.
As for signing Messi, his release clause is 250 million euros – a number, which doesn’t seem too far out of City’s reach.
However, Ferran Soriano, City’s chief executive and a former Barça employee, is convinced that the Catalan club would sell for a round 170 million euros.
