Football Super Star Lionel Messi’s father and agent Jorge has arrived in Barcelona and is expected to try to negotiate a move away for the six-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Jorge Messi will reportedly meet with Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu on Wednesday to discuss a potential departure for the club captain, who last week informed the Catalan giants of his desire to leave.
Barca is willing to offer their all-time leading goalscorer a contract extension until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Messi did not report for the first day of pre-season training under Ronald Koeman on Monday, signaling his belief that a clause in his contract allowing him to leave on a free has been activated.
He also failed to show up for a coronavirus screening on Sunday and will not join his team-mates for training as he no longer considers himself part of Koeman’s squad.
