The stunning contract offer Man City tabled Messi

Manchester City were in contact with Lionel Messi before he signed his new deal with Barcelona last month.

With his previous contract winding down, Messi was free to sign a pe-contract with a foreign team from January 1.

And making overtures during the confusion was City, particularly their owner Sheikh Mansour.

Marca reports City tabled a contract offer to Messi's camp worth €50m-a-year - and also included a €100m signing on fee.

However, after much delays, Messi chose to commit his future to Barca, signing terms to 2021 with a buyout clause of €700m.

It's understood Messi's new salary is €35m and Barca have also agreed to pay a €100m bonus in installments over the next four years.
