F. C Barcelona earlier this month released Neymar to PSG which smashed the world transfer record.
On the other hand, Messi recently agreed on a contract which would last for five years with Barcelona, but he is yet to sign the new deal.
Messi could re-unite with his former manager Pep Guardiola at Manchester City after intensifying talks.
When Pep Guardiola was asked if Messi’s buy out clause could be met, he said he doesn’t know if someone might have the money and want to spend it. It might happen.
