The Argentina captain could pocket an astronomical sum should he choose to join Manuel Pellegrini in the Super League, although he is currently in talks over a new Barcelona deal
A Chinese Super League club will try and hijack Lionel Messi’s contract negotiations with Barcelona with a stunning offer worth half a billion euros, according to AS.
The Argentine is currently in talks over extending his deal at the Camp Nou, which he has called home since the age of 13.
Hebei China Fortune, however, are mulling over a bid that would be hard to refuse.
Reports suggest the club currently coached by Manuel Pellegrini could offer a five-year contract to the star, who would receive an incredible €100 million per term.
