Gary Lineker reacts to Lionel Messi’s Barcelona decision

"I don't know at this stage, but if Messi comes to England it would be great for the Premier League".

Messi, along with his father and representative Jorge, maintained that the terms in the contract were still valid in August due to the COVID-extended season, but this was struck down by both the Barcelona hierarchy and La Liga's any club that wants to force through a transfer for the six-time Ballon d'Or victor will be required to pay a release clause of €700 million ($829 million).

Carragher went on to suggest teams have found a way to dilute Guardiola's City, as he claimed their 12 defeats last season were evidence that they have lost some of their fear factor.

The absence of any new contract means that even if he is not allowed to leave this summer, Messi could negotiate with other teams from January 1 and go for free when his current deal expires in July.

Messi is out of contract at Barcelona at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, and it is hard to see him stay at the club under the current hierarchy before his current contract.

'I am going to continue at this club because the president has told me the only way I can leave is if I pay the €700million (£625m) and that is impossible, ' he told Goal.

Therefore, in keeping with the dutch words It showed itself "very happy if you want to stay". I would never go to court against Barca because it is the club that I love, that gave me everything since I arrived. "My love for Barca will never change".

Barcelona star Lionel Messi will stay with the Catalan club next season but would be able to sign for a new club as a free agent from January, with Inter one of the clubs most serious about acquiring the six time Ballon d'Or victor, according to a report from today's paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

His lawyers sent Barca a burofax on August 25 stating his intention to depart but Messi insisted he had he made his feelings clear to Bartomeu long before.

It's not an insignificant element Messi telling Koeman that he didn't wish to proceed within the workforce as soon as he had heard the phrases that the Dutchman devoted to him on the day of his presentation. "I believed it was time to step aside". Also, the financial figures we are hearing are just mind-blowing and I wonder how it would affect that Liverpool dressing room if a deal like that was done.

He has scored 634 goals and won 34 titles with the club that he joined as a 13-year-old and where he came through the ranks at La Masia.

Despite his unhappiness at having to stay, he insists he will give his all for the team next season under Koeman, who is trying to overhaul the squad.

"This might sound unusual, but I probably wouldn't want Liverpool to sign Messi".

In favor of Koeman plays the Messi's recognized competitiveness and that the Argentine recognized that "there is a new coach and a new idea". That's good, but then we have to see how the team responds and if it means we can compete or not. And now they hold on to the fact that I did not say it before June 10.
