Prestigious Hebei China Fortune are preparing a mega £621m move for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, according to reports from Mundo Deportivo.

Mundo Deportivo claimed that Hebei China Fortune were determined to secure Messi’s services and prepared to pay of around £1.7 million-a-week after tax in the summer.

However the Argentine forward turned down the offer and signed the new contract with Barcelona until 2021 with a £618m release clause.
