Manchester City believe they can sign Barcelona ace Lionel Messi once he decides to call time on his La Liga career, Goal.com reveals.

The report also briefs that the Argentine skipper has a clause in his contract, which would allow him to leave Camp Nou in 2020 for free. Cityzens are hoping they can benefit from the aforementioned clause.

The exit links of Messi have intensified after he clapped back at Barca’s Sporting director Eric Abidal for his criticism on the players.

PSG and Inter Milan are also revealed to be one of the possible destinations for the 32-year-old.

However, the transfer scenario looks implausible for the moment citing Messi's proven fidelity to the Blaugrana on multiple occasions. Meanwhile, Barca are also confident of their skipper's contract renewal.

The Argentine has continued his good run of form in La Liga this season, topping the goals and assists charts at the moment. He has also racked up 2 goals and 3 assists in the Champions League.
