French moneybags Paris Saint Germain is the only team still interested in the services of Lionel Messi.
Messi has his current deal expiring at the end of the season and while Barca is convinced that the player would stay, there had been earlier reports that Manchester City and PSG were hopeful that they could get the player.
L’Equipe as relayed by Cuatro however states that Manchester City has now discarded all of their interest in signing the Argentine with the move leaving only PSG in the race.
There are claims that French giants have already offered Messi a contract and it remains to be seen if the player will be keen on finding a new environment in the summer.
The Argentine himself has stated outright that he wants to focus on the current season before thinking about any of these matters but the report indicates that City owners will reward Pep Guardiola with a massive signing if he were to win this season’s Champions League.
The massive signing is thought to be Kyllian Mbappe with Pep Guardiola said to be an admirer of the player.
