English Premier side, Manchester City is set to offer Lionel Messi a long-term deal that would see him move to the club’s MLS partner club New York City FC after three years in the Premier League.
The club is willing to offer the Argentine the chance to become an ambassador for the City Football Group.
City are the favourites to sign the 33-year-old after he told Barcelona he wants to terminate his contract.
There are reports that the Barcelona captain spoke with Pep Guardiola, days after Barca lost 8-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Although City will try to sign Messi as a free agent, they would also consider paying €100 and €150 million, if he is unable to force an exit unilaterally.
Players like Eric Garcia and Angelino could be included in any potential deal.
