Transfer Update: Messi

With Lionel Messi's contract at FC Barcelona set to expire at the end of the season, there has reportedly been another twist in the Argentine's situation.

While Messi continues to do the business on the pitch, his future at the club remains unclear heading into the final few months of his deal.

Both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City have been mooted as possible destinations for the Argentine, with the former having made their interest public already.

Even though Messi was keen to leave before the start of the season, Spanish publication Marca have now reported that the Argentine could be convinced to remain with the club.

Check where Messi ranks among the highest-paid players in world football below:

It is believed that former president Josep Bartomeu was the main reason behind's decision to leave, but that could change depending on how the elections go next week.

The report claims that Messi is not motivated by money and has not been impressed with PSG making their interest public, which Barcelona have also criticised.

As things stand, Marca claim that Messi and his agent have not started formal discussions with the Catalans as the player is focused on the 2020/21 campaign.
