Manchester City football club of England have denied making any offer to Lionel Messi, even though the Barcelona forward’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
He is free to speak to non-Spanish clubs and has been linked with several clubs like City and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports emerged this week that City made a revised transfer offer for Messi but the club has now denied the reports.
Manchester City are one of the few clubs that could afford his salary and there have been reports that a deal could also see him play for other sides in the City Football Group – including New York City FC.
We haven’t made any offer for Messi. Either now or last summer and there are no plans to make any” a club official told Goal.
Messi, turns 34 in June, and will wait until the end of the season to decide his future as whether to extend his contract at Barca, where he has spent his entire professional career.
