Manchester City have emerged as the frontrunners to land Lionel Messi this summer after the Argentina international handed in a transfer request at Barcelona.
And now City are set to meet with Messi’s family next week but Paris St-Germain are understood to have prepared their own offer too.
According to Veronica Brunati, City are prepared to meet Messi’s family in a bid to convince him to sign for them.
The Etihad outfit are the favourites to land the Argentine striker due to his connection with Pep Guardiola.
“The best thing about him is not what he does but how simple he makes everything look,” the City manager once said in an interview with L’Esportiu.
“He is not just the best player because he can dribble past three or four players, it is because he does it better than anyone in the world.”
However, Brunati goes on to state that PSG are preparing their own offer – which involves Luis Suarez.
The Uruguay international looks set to leave Barcelona as well after Koeman told him he was not part of his plans.
But Suarez and Messi have a deep connection as pals, on and off the pitch, and both would like the chance to play with each other more.
