Manchester City are still keeping tabs on Lionel Messi. According to the Sun, he remains on City boss Pep Guardiola’s list of potential targets, along with Aston Villa’s £100million-rated captain Jack Grealish and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

Messi’s current deal expires in the summer and he is waiting for new president Joan Laporta to get the finances in order. City are planning for life without record 178-goal scorer Sergio Aguero. The 32-years-old leaves this summer.

Meanwhile, Haaland’s club Borussia Dortmund do not want to sell and sporting director Michael Zorc said: “We signed Erling almost a year and a half ago and are still planning firmly with him.”

Other names linked to City include Spurs star Harry Kane and Inter Milan pair Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
