Lionel Messi’s father, Jorge Messi has arrived in the UK and is already negotiating with Manchester City, RAC 1 reports.
Recall that the player has made it known to the LaLiga club via fax that he wants to leave this summer.
Already several top European teams have been placed on high-alert, including City and Paris Saint-Germain.
However, Messi seem to prefer a reunion with Pep Guardiola, who he worked with for four years at the Camp Nou.
It is believed his father is discussing a two-year deal with City, although there are still question marks over if the Premier League side will have to pay a transfer fee.
Messi believes he can activate a clause in his contract, which makes him a free agent at the end of a Barcelona season.
It may be somehow difficult for him as Barca have insisted that the clause expired in June, which would mean either Messi or City would have to pay the player’s £630million release clause at the club.
