As Sun reports, Manchester City can pay 100 million pounds sterling (about €115.2 million) for Messi. If this transfer occurs, then the Argentinean will become the most expensive football player in the world. Messi can expect the contract with the salary of 800 thousand pounds sterling (nearly € 921 000) a week.
Earlier executive director of "Blaugrana" Oscar Grau has noted that the club cannot spend 70% of the budget for salary of one player.
