Barcelona should consider selling Messi this winter transfer market
Manchester City’s chief operating officer, Omar Berrada, has officially confirmed that the Premier League club has kept the financial resources set aside to sign Lionel Messi of Barcelona in the summer transfer window, according to GOAL.
The Sky Blues are confident that they will sign their wanted man after failing to acquire his services this summer after several attempts. Lionel Messi himself is eager and motivated to join forces with Pep Guardiola once again in his career.
Messi’s contract is set to run out in the summer of 2021 and Barcelona must make a decision on whether they should sell the 33-year-old in January or lose their greatest ever player on a free transfer next season.
The 33-year-old captain is currently valued at 100 million euros, according to Transfermarkt. Barca could possibly sell Messi for a figure way higher than his market value and could use the transfer fee to improve a few positions that are lacking in the squad.
