Jorge Messi is scheduled to meet with Barcelona’s board members,
including President Josep Maria Bartomeu himself,
but perhaps later in the day, and he is scheduled to discuss the departure process with them as friendly as possible and without any complications.
This comes in the presence of Manchester City‘s sporting director Txiki Begirstein in Barcelona,
with some speculation that he will interview Lionel Messi to discuss the possibility of joining The City.
The English team is more than linked to Messi at the moment,
and some reports have even pointed to a set of terms of a five-year contract with a set of physical privileges
that will allow Messi to earn £600 million throughout the contract.
Messi did not attend the team’s first training with Dutch coach Ronald Koeman,
He also did not attend the tests of the new Coronavirus (Coved-19), which complicated his fate with Barcelona.
