The “City Transfer Taunt” leads to a news story based on a line.

MANUEL PELLEGRINI has opened the door to a bank-busting Manchester City move for Lionel Messi.

How?

Pellegrini spoke about Messi after completing a £28million deal for Swansea striker Wilfried Bony.

Well, sort of. He was aked about Messi. And he replied:

“It’s normal we are linked with the best players in the market.”

And the taunt? That’s it. The £480m deal?

Messi, 27, has a £210m buy-out clause in his contract… The Argentine maestro would expect a six-year deal worth around £270m, taking any switch to a staggering £480m.

But if Messi won’t come to Pellegrini, will Pelligrini go to Messi at Barcelona?

“They are just rumours. I am very happy at City and I still have a year and a half on my contract.”
