As reported by the daily based in Barcelona, Sport, Messi’s release clause which reached 700 million euros will not be redeemed by City. Instead, they are offering 100 million Euros plus a defender, a midfielder and a striker.
The three names are Eric Garcia, Bernardo Silva, and Gabriel Jesus. They are indeed not irreplaceable figures at City.
Eric Garcia is only 19 years old and made only 13 appearances last season in the Premier League. He is also said to be reluctant to extend his remaining contract for another year. Another plus point, he is a La Masia dropout.
Bernardo silva successfully packed 8 goals and 10 assists from 52 matches last season. He can play in the positions of attacking midfielder, central midfielder and right winger. But City still have Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, and Phil Foden who can fill that position.
Gabriel Jesus also the same. In his fourth season with City, he still could not shift his senior, Sergio Aguero. Although both scored 23 goals last season, Aguero did it in only 32 games, while Jesus needed 53 games.

The three players are considered to have a high selling price if they want to be bought separately, and are still young. Therefore, the offer is considered to be not far behind the release clause Lionel Messi.
Previously it was reported that Messi had sent documents to Barcelona via Burofax on Tuesday (25/8) who expressed his desire to leave the club that raised his name. He is said to want to leave for free by activating a clause in his contract that does allow him to do this.
The problem occurred because Barca thought the clause had expired since last June 10, while Lionel Messi’s camp thought the deadline should be postponed because the season ended delayed due to the pandemic. COVID-19.
This case made Barcelona supporters furious. They urged the President of Barcelona Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned from his position because he was deemed responsible for this problem.
