THE CITY IS INTERESTED IN THE MESSAGE
Does Manchester City want Lionel Messi or not?
The word on Monday was that The city was cold in the superstar of Barcelona. But today, there seems to be a possibility that Pep Guardiola could make a move for Messi next year.
ESPN reports that Guardiola’s new deal puts City at the helm if Messi, as expected, wants to leave Barcelona next summer. City are apparently aware that a reunion with Guardiola is aimed at the 33-year-old, just six months after the club was “ready to do whatever it took” to finalize a deal.
The Daily correspondence He also believes that City remain interested in Messi, having submitted a ten-year plan last year to maximize the impact of what would be a stunning deal.
GREEK IS GUARDIOLA’S PRIORITY
The independent are rather more steadfast in Guardiola’s desire to sign Jack Grealis.
The story of Miguel Delaney goes that the leader of the Villa is the top target of the boss of the city for next summer. Pep obviously sees Grealish as a “highly bought” player – not as buyer as it was earlier this year who has been discussed by the city boss at meeting room level, and with Kevin De Bruyne.
The Belgian playmaker is said to have given his support to Grealish, after describing the English star as “a player that City should try”.
Grealish will not be available cheaply, however. A clause in the contract he signed with Villa in the summer states that he could not leave the club with less than 100 million pounds.

REAL, INTER DISCUSS SWAP DEAL
Christian Eriksen is in a hurry to move. The Danish player wants from Inter and the club would be very happy to give it a go.
Borussia Bortmund is mentioned as a possible destination by TMW, but Sky Germany Eriksen suggests heading to Real Madrid.
Apparently, Real had discussions with Inter about a possible exchange agreement that would see Isco go the other way.
Real are delighted to let Isco go, with the Spanish player appearing in eight of the club’s 10 La Liga games this season, but has only started three and has yet to leave the bench in the Champions League.
However, Real say they are asking for around 62 62 million for Isco, which seems optimistic, while Eriksen’s value for Inter would be significantly lower.
AS contradicts the story somewhat, saying that Real has not received offers for Isco, who has been linked with Arsenal and City. At this price, it comes as no surprise.
