Transfer Update: Messi

Despite it appearing that Lionel Messi could be set to stay at FC Barcelona, there has been an update on the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's future, and it involves Manchester City.

Linesman Asks Haaland For Signature, Pep Reacts

With the Catalan giants' performances improving following a difficult start to the campaign, there seems to be a feeling in Spain that Messi might now extend his contract with the Blaugrana.

The Argentine made it his mission to leave Barcelona before the current season got underway, but was denied an exit by former president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

The return of Joan Laporta as chief, though, appears to have patched up Messi's relationship with the club's board, leading many to believe the 33-year-old could be persuaded to stay in Spain ahead of next season.

Did you see the special shirt Barca gifted Messi after he became the club's record appearance-maker? 

City were favourites to land his signature in 2020, and if reports are to be believed, the English club is still very much interested in reuniting the Argentina talisman with his former boss Pep Guardiola.

According to Marca, the Premier League leaders are not yet ready to make an official offer for the six-time world player of the year, but are preparing a deal should he make it clear he will not be renewing his contract at Barca.

If he does decide to move on from the Camp Nou this year, Messi will be able to leave the LaLiga giants as a free agent in the next transfer window, with Paris Saint-Germain reportedly also on high alert.
