Pep Guardiola and Lionel Messi discussed transfer last week

Pep Guardiola and Lionel Messi talked last week to discuss a potential move for the player from Barcelona to Manchester City, according to ESPN.

City officials are working out how they could meet his wage demands and potentially pay Barcelona to let him go if they have to negotiate a 700 million euro release clause, while also meeting Financial Fair Play regulations.

Given FFP’s failure, it’s worth assuming that they can probably figure out Messi’s wages if they put their mind to it. As for the release clause, one would assume those negotiations would have to go to court.
