Lionel Messi transfer Manchester city

Messi Transfer Rumours with Manchester City and other major clubs | Soccer

Manchester City are monitoring Messi after his spat with Barcelona’s Sporting Director, Eric Abidal. The Barcelona captain questioned Eric about his allegations and told him to be open about player names when criticising them. With the long relationship between Messi and Barcelona, this feud could lessen the interest of Messi at the club.

Lionel Messi’s contract with Barcelona ends next summer with a clause of leaving for free at the end of this season. Manchester City are all ears after the latest breakout from Messi. He even mentioned his interest in leaving the club after the contract expires. With not yet extending his contract after 2021, Messi is a potential target for the major clubs.

Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola has consistently hailed Messi as the Greatest of All Time. He will be all ears when it comes to signing the Argentina star which makes Manchester City as the lead in signing the star. The City Manager has been Barcelona’s manager in the period of 2008-2012. This brings him close to signing the star as well. He mentioned in the last season that he doesn’t want Messi to leave Barcelona. But who doesn’t want one of the greatest player in their team?

Barcelona President Bartomeu last September told Barca TV “Messi signed until 2021. It was agreed that at the end of the penultimate season he is at liberty to leave for free. He has earned that freedom to decide his future, but he is very Cule and I am calm. Xavi, [Andres] Iniesta and [Carles] Puyol had the same clause. We couldn’t give Messi a different clause, but I repeat, I am in no doubt he will stay for many years.”

Will Messi make a possible exit at the end of this season or after 2021? If yes, where will he go? Express your comments in the views.
