Talented Barcelona football star Lionel Messi is making a move to join Manchester City.

According to AS, this development is tied around the speculation that the Barcelona legend’s father is already in Manchester City to discuss terms with the club.

The idea of Messi leaving Barca came when the Spanish football giant were recently beaten by Bayern Munich 8-2 in the champions league.

Sources in Europe are already talking about the exit of Messi from Barcelona. They also said he has contacted Pep Guardiola a few days ago?

But there is another side to his desire to leave the club is a confirmation of a release clause in his contract with the club, that allow him to leave for free this summer, that the Argentine has triggered.

Meanwhile, Barcelona has reacted to his intention, stressing that they do not agree the clause is still active.

More so, it is said to have expired on June 10 – 10 days after the original date of the Champions League final on May 30.
