Messi wants out of Barcelona after the embarrassing 8-2 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League and disappointing season in Spain which resulted in no trophies.
Lionel Messi’s Father reported to be in England discussing terms with Manchester City for the Argentine legend.
This comes a day after the six-time Ballon d’Or winner informed the club that he does not want to continue under new coach Ronald Koeman.
Jorge Messi has already touched down in Manchester to discuss terms with the Premier League side– RAC1 and TyC Sports Reports.
The reports say that the player’s father who is also his agent is discussing a two-year deal with City, despite a reported disagreement between Barcelona and Lionel Messi over his £630million release clause at the club.
Before Messi made his decision to leave the club, he held a moment of truth kind of talks with new coach Ronald Koeman following the Dutchman’s appointment as Quique Setien’s replacement last week.
In their discussions, Messi made his decision clear to leave the club while the new manager told him his “privileges” were over.
Messi, whose deal runs out in 2021, believes a clause in his contract means he can leave as a free agent this summer.
We feel the new move to Manchester City could be to form a unity with ex-Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola in England.
During his distinguished playing career at Camp Nou, Messi won an astonishing 10 La Liga titles, six Copa del Reys, seven Spanish Super Cups, and four Champions League.
