€200 Million Offer to Buy Lionel Messi

I know many of you out there aren't really soccer fans and might not care about the sport at all, but you HAVE to appreciate something like this.

That's right. Manchester City is offering Barcelona about €200 million (over $277 million in USD) to acquire Messi. 

Now, if you aren't familiar with how soccer transfers work, that €200 million is just the transfer fee. That doesn't include what Manchester City would be paying for his salary. Messi makes around €16 million a year as of right now so you could guess that MCFC would be upping that amount.


I personally think there's no chance in Messi being sold, but the offer is just staggering.
