Amid the speculations of difficulties in contract talks between Lionel Messi and Barcelona, rumors have been spreading of him possibly moving to Manchester City. Messi, 29, has been rumored to various clubs before including Manchester City as well as Paris Saint Germain, Boca Juniors, and others.

The Argentinian magician would see a record transfer fee, as well as record-breaking wages, climbing to as much as £800,000 per week, or a whopping £41.6 million per year, shattering the record for salary alone currently held by Cristiano Ronaldo.

While a move to the Etihad Stadium is unlikely, should it happen, it would certainly change the Premier League in a positive way, and bring more excitement to the sport.
