CAN THE ENGLISH GIANT REALLY AFFORD THE LIKES OF THE BARCELONA STAR??
Lionel Messi aims to leave the side after the heavy defeat but the financials involved in the transfer clause of mighty EUR 700 million has been causing a considerate problem.
With Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Messi has the opportunity to work with under a coach with him he enjoyed his most successful days but the finances involved in his transfer puts the pursuit out of bounds. It is a known fact that Man City have been monitoring Messi’s situation closely for a very long time but the Argentine’s loyalty with the club had made it difficult for the Premier League side to court him.
While the transfer clause is a major problem, the other problem is the pandemic season which has hurt the financial conditions of all the major club of Europe.
The newly selected manager Ronald Koeman is also said to have a chat with Pep regarding the state of mind of the Barcelona star and all the future prospects.
