The Lionel Messi to Manchester City rumors show no sign of ending currently, and Sport have come up with a monster effort.

The Catalan daily are reporting the Citizens will offer €100 million plus Bernardo Silva, Eric Garcia and Gabriel Jesus for the Barcelona captain.

The report reckons Man City need to find a way to bring in Messi with “financially crippling the club” and also need to avoid “any further FFP restrictions.”

With that in mind they have decided they can’t offer any more than €100m in cash but are willing to throw in a few players as well.

Sport say Barca already have an agreement with Garcia, quite like the look of Bernardo but aren’t too interested in bringing in Jesus.
