Manchester City will not be including Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva or Riyad Mahrez in any bid to sign Barcelona attacker Lionel Messi during this summer's transfer window.

Messi has informed Barca that he wants to leave Camp Nou ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, and a number of clubs, including City, are believed to be in the running for his signature.

A recent report claimed that the Citizens were considering using Bernardo Silva and Jesus as makeweights in an offer for the Argentina international.

However, according to the Manchester Evening News, neither player will be included as part of a bid, while Mahrez will also not be available to the Catalan giants.

The report claims that Eric Garcia could be included, though, as the central defender is thought to be keen on a return to the Spanish giants during this summer's transfer window.

Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are also both said to be leading candidates to sign Messi.
