Manchester United happy to complete Lionel Messi transfer if Barcelona accept bid


Manchester United are exploring the potential of a sensational move to bring Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi to Old Trafford, the Daily Mail has revealed.

New manager Jose Mourinho will reportedly have £200million to spend in this summer's transfer window as he prepares to make at least five signings in the coming months.

But securing the services of the Argentinean is an almost-impossible task.

Barcelona technical director Robert Fernandez confirmed two days ago that key players will not leave the club during the summer.

"We're satisfied with what we have achieved this season," Fernandez told As.

"We did well throughout the whole campaign with the only exception of three weeks where we struggled but if the quality of the players was not high we wouldn't have achieved such results.

"[Neymar] will be here next season, we already announced it. He is happy. And so is [Lionel Messi]."
