According to football agent saying that the Argentine is currently unhappy at Barcelona and these have engineered the premier league side willing to take the risk on bringing in the Barcelona playmaker.
Rumours are saying that Manchester City are working underground to see if a move can be established for Lionel Messi to transfer his service to the EPL side City.
Based on current season performance which has made Barcelona have one of their worst season ever in which they failed to win silverware for the first time in twelve years.
With losing the La Liga title to Madrid and a worst outing in the champion league in which coach Quique Setien was replaced with Ronald Koeman, the playmaker is looking at trying his service somewhere else.
It must be noted that it is a also a bad season for City failing to lift a major title with other irregularities attached to the club but onething must be noted that the Barcelona playmaker have a £631m or €700m release clause
