Sensational news has reached the Football Transfer Tavern courtesy of the Daily Mail.
The publication have claimed that the best player in the world, Lionel Messi could well be leaving Barcelona.
As our punters claim, Messi has come under rather a lot of criticism this season and has been linked with a move away from the Camp Nou for the first time in a very long time.
The Argentine of course grew up at the club, and we never thought we would seriously see him linked with a move elsewhere.
Now however, it has been claimed that Barcelona see him as having a bigger value in terms of a move away than actually on the field.
That of course places a few clubs on red alert – with Manchester City leading that race.
The Citizens are of course rather rich and as our punters note, can afford pretty much anyone they want.
Paris Saint-Germain are rather similar and we think that there could well be a bidding war should Messi actually make noises about leaving the Catalan giants.
Could City land the best player of a generation or will Financial Fair Play stand in their way? Let us know your thoughts below.
