Mirror Online: LONDON, England: Manchester City have reportedly slashed their contract offer to Lionel Messi by a whopping £170million.
Messi could leave Barcelona when his contact expires at the end of the season.
Paris Saint-Germain are very keen on signing the Argentine, who would link up with his former team-mate and friend Neymar if he made the move to France.
Currently, Messi is keeping his options open, and could still pen an extension at Barcelona.
But should he opt to try his hand in the Premier League with Manchester City, where he will be reunited with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, then Messi will earn less money than he was due just six months ago, according to The Sun.
City are said to want to tie Messi down to a two-year playing deal at the Etihad, with the option of extending this by another 12 months.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner would then be required to play two more seasons in the MLS with Manchester City’s sister club New York City.
