Manchester City have not given up on signing Lionel Messi for free this summer, but will wait until March or April before making a move.

Messi, 33, is out of contract in June and has been free to negotiate with other clubs since Jan. 1. City led the chase for the Argentina international last August when he asked Barca to let him leave but the Premier League leaders have kept a low profile in recent months.

As a result, ESPN report that City are instead choosing to go about their business quietly, and they have already touched base with Messi's entourage ahead of a potential bid in the spring or summer.

Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta has confirmed that Messi has already received offers from "clubs that do not lack money", with PSG reportedly lining up an £800k-a-week deal for the 33-year-old.

Messi will be a good addition. I think this move(if it goes through) will be for the marketing rather than on the pitch difference. The reason behind this is that City need an all out Stricker right now rather than a playmaker. City is one the best teams in world right now and does not need a player like messi. I feel that any other top Stricker would suffice and messi will be an unnecessary addition.
