Barcelona's 33-year-old captain is said to be aiming to join the Citizens by way of a free transfer, despite the Catalan club insisting he still has a contract with them that is schedule to expire in June 2021 only and includes a release clause of €700 million (R13 billion).

If Messi does get his wish to leave for free, he would become arguably the greatest free agent signing in recent memory, although there have been a few big names that have moved to new clubs in this window for no cost at all.

Experienced Brazil international Willan swapped Chelsea for Arsenal after seven long years at Stamford Bridge following the expiration of his deal with the Blues.

Manchester United released Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan for free after the Chilean attacker seemed to regain form under Antonio Conte in the 2019/20 campaign, while Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier was able to sign for Borussia Dortmund after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.
