Manchester City have been offered the unstoppable Barcelona captain Lionel Messi.

Without a contract in June, staying with Barcelona is still very likely for Messi, but he will have to accept tax cuts to do so, especially as the La Liga club set to spend most of its money this summer to close the gap on Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

According to the SUN reports that he intends to agree to a 12-month contract elsewhere if they cannot accumulate a £ 500,000-a-week weekly income after tax.

That would see Messi earn around £ 25million a year, making him the highest-paid player in Premier League history if he had joined the richest Man City.

PSG are the only other side in world football that could afford those salaries, but with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both determined to stay in the French capital, Mauricio Pochettino could risk his attack by bringing Messi.
