This could force the Catalan giants to sell for less than the 700 million euro release clause, in the hope of bringing back a financial boost without a long, nasty and long contractual dispute with the best player in history and one of the most popular sports figures in the world. Such a stalemate would not throw Barca into bestof lights, especially with other superstars. An unfortunate legend is bad for business and certainly bad for the morale of the club. Messi has dragged himself on Barca`s side for the past 2-3 years in the EUROPA league. A meeting with Guardiola, under which Messi enjoyed his most successful days as a footballer, could help him return to the pinnacle of his career. Pep has written a new two-year contract with City, who commit him until 2023, and he is planning what has always deprived him since winning the Champions League since taking office. “For me, you look at what went with him signed a new two-year contract, there are rumors Kevin De Bruyne will sign a new contract… I think Messi is inevitable. Sinclair added an approach for Messi, the 33-year-old South American who can talk about pre-contract terms with his many candidates from January: “I can`t see things any other way. The matter could be brought to court, although sources close to the deal expect it to be willing to reach an agreement on both sides if Messi passes with his threat to leave. In a question-and-answer session for the CRIS Cancer Foundation, Mr. Pique said he hoped a new contract could be signed with his teammate. Asked if there were other people in the club who were open to Messi`s departure, Planes added that everyone wanted the same thing.

And what better way to win the European Cup than to hire Messi – with Pep never claiming Ol`Big Ears without the Argentina ace on his team. The contract stipulates that Messi play for three seasons for the EPL club before joining New York City in Major League Soccer in the United States. Despite his obvious interest in him, the 49-year-old says he has no interest in moving elsewhere and would have come out of the game, as he did when he left Barcelona in 2012 if no deal had been reached with City. City have the means to make a stunning deal, and Sinclair believes the Argentine icon will soon be reunited with former Barca boss Guardiola. He has been heavily linked with a stint at Manchester City and the Blues believe they would be leading the queue to land him if he left Catalonia. There was also a meeting between Barcelona and Messi`s father, who is also his agent on the player`s future, but the chances of 33-year-old superstar footballer make a turnaround of almost no appearance. Messi has been arguing with Barca, claiming he is no longer their player after the end of his contract with an exit clause. The Argentinian wants to leave for nothing, but Barca want his release clause of 700 million euros to be paid for it. Paris St-Germain has also been associated with the 33-year-old, but every candidate in Barcelona`s presidential election – to be held in January – has said the priority for them was to convince Messi to stay. Man City will hire Barcelona`s Lionel Messi and replay the Argentine legend with Pep Guardiola, it was told to talkSPORT.

It seems that the whole saga will be tried in court when the legal teams of both parties meet on the complicated details of the contract. But Messi already seems to be trying to find a lucrative new contract with Pep Guardiola`s Manchester City.
