Manchester City have reportedly been given fresh hope ahead of their proposed move for Lionel Messi, who is not happy with the contract offer that Barcelona have offered him according to the SportsDirectNews website.
City have been linked with one of the greatest players the game has ever seen, with some reports even claiming they made a sensational £250 million offer last summer.
However, he responded to rumours by insisting he is happy and a new deal looked to be signed.
But the Catalans are £38million apart from Messi’s demands with negotiations temporarily shelved after the player was incensed the club would not offer him the same as Cristiano Ronaldo.
And now City are understood to be monitoring the situation and are prepared to meet the star’s demands.
