Messi’s father in Manchester to negotiate with City


Lionel Messi’s father, Jorge Messi is already discussing terms with Manchester City, according to several reports.

It was revealed on Tuesday night that the Barcelona captain wants to leave the LaLiga club, after a disappointing season in Spain which resulted in no trophies.

Several top European clubs have been placed on high-alert, including Pep Guardiola’s City and Paris Saint-Germain.

And according to RAC1 and TyC Sports, Jorge Messi has already touched down in Manchester to discuss terms with the Premier League side.

The reports say that the player’s father is discussing a two-year deal with City, though there are still question marks over whether the Premier League side will have to stump up a transfer fee for the Argentinian superstar.

Messi believes that he can activate a clause in his contract which makes him a free agent at the end of a Barcelona season.

However, Barcelona insist that the clause expired in June, which would mean either Messi or City would have to pay the player’s £630million release clause at the club.

A move to Manchester City would see Messi reunite with ex-Barcelona coach Guardiola in England.
