Barcelona are readying a new deal for Lionel Messi amid interest from Manchester United, reports The Daily Star.
The Catalan giants are desperate to tie down a new deal for their superstar with the likes of Manchester City and Bayern Munich also reportedly interested in his services.
Sensational reports had come out earlier this week that the Red Devils were ready to bring the World Player of the Year of the year to Old Trafford this past summer.
It had been suggested that Messi turned down a move to the Manchester United and now Barcelona will make a move to keep their prize asset.
Barcelona's president Sandro Rosell has promised fans that he "will move heaven and earth for Messi to stay" with the La Liga giants.
However Manchester United fans will be desperate to see David Moyes bring a marquee signing to the club after a miserable summer transfer window.
A move for Messi seems even more unlikely than before, but Manchester United will hope a top player arrives at the club in the near future.
