Manchester City eye Inter's Lukaku and PSG interested in Messi

Manchester City are showing an interest in Internazionale striker Romelu Lukaku while Paris Saint-Germain has said the club are interested in signing Lionel Messi as his contract with Barcelona comes to an end this summer.

City have scored the least goals of clubs in the top five (29) and there have been questions surrounding Sergio Aguero's future, as the Argentine's contract ends this summer.

There is still a chance that City's leading scorer of all-time could stay put, despite his injury issues this season, but City are still on the lookout for a big-name striker who could come in to lead their line.

While reports have linked them with Tottenham's Harry Kane, it is also suggested that a move for ex-Manchester United player Lukaku could be part of a £200 million spending spree led by Pep Guardiola during the summer.

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has said the club are interested in signing Lionel Messi as his contract with Barcelona comes to an end this summer.

The Argentina international has been free to negotiate with clubs outside of Spain since Jan. 1.

Great players like Messi will always be put in PSG's list. Of course, it is not the time to talk about it or to dream about it. But we are sat at the big table of the clubs following this closely, Leonardo told France Football.
Actually, no, we are not sat yet but our chair is reserved there, just in case. Four months [before the end of the season] in football, it is an eternity, especially at this time.

Any potential move would involve a major financial commitment from PSG -- especially as the club try to work out extensions for Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

The two players are contracted with PSG until June 2022.

I hope they are convinced that PSG is a good place to be right now for a very high level and ambitious player. We just have to find an agreement with their desires, their demands, our expectations and our possibilities, Leonardo added.
We are not begging them: 'Please, stay.' It is more argued than this. The ones who really want to stay will stay. We exchange regularly and I have good vibes on both those cases.
