Messi free to discuss Barca exit in January

Lionel Messi is free to speak with clubs abroad from January over the possibility of a summer transfer when his contract expires at Barcelona.

There will be nothing to prevent Messi from leaving in 2021, however, and the 33-year-old could end what would be a 20-year association with Barca should he decide to pursue another project.

Manchester City are favourites to sign the forward, although Neymar’s desire for a reunion with Messi means PSG could use their financial muscle to bring him to the French capital.
