Manchester City prepare mega-contract for Messi
Manchester City are drawing up plans to snare the signing of Lionel Messi.
The Argentine has his heart set on leaving Barcelona this summer after handing in a transfer request.
According to Sport, City will offer Messi a five-year deal to join.
The report says this contract will be split into two periods - three years with City in the Premier League and two years with sister club New York City in MLS.
Messi would earn 100 million euros a season before tax at City, with a total contract worth of 750 million euros over five years.
The rest of the sum will be the 250 million euro signing bonus to join New York.
This type of contract agreement would avoid the threat of breaking Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.
