Lionel Messi transfer saga is on full swing as six-time Ballon d’Or winner made it clear that he wants to leave Barcelona and join Man City to start a new season.

The Argentine star’s failings in the Champions League this year with the shambolic elimination of FC Barcelona and desire to work under Pep Guardiola once again has ignited the greatest transfer saga of all times.

However, 33 years old is the most sought out player in the world with one year left on his contract at FC Barcelona and reportedly a €700m release clause, it will be an uphill task to lure the superstar away from the Spanish giants.

Manchester City wants to negotiate the deal which would see him join the club on record transfer. However, in case of completion of the transfer, six-time Ballon d’Or winner will become the best-paid footballer on the planet.
