FANS of some clubs are dreaming of signing Lionel Messi after a Twitter discovery – and they include both Manchester City and Chelsea.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner sent a fax to chiefs on Tuesday demanding Barca exercise a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for nothing with immediate effect.
That was after been told that his privileges are over in which the club also worsened the situation by asking his best pal to leave.
However, the club believe that the clause has in fact expired, with the 33-year-old superstar under contract until the summer of 2021.
Club and player seem set for a legal battle over the clause, with Barcelona believing it expired on June 10 and that a €700m (£629m) buy-out clause is still valid while his representatives are insisting that an extension had been granted by the covid 19 hiatus.
Regardless of the situation, speculation over who he will join next continues to intensify with a host of clubs linked with a move.
However, eagle-eyed social media users believe they may have narrowed down his potential new employers to just four teams.
And it is all on the fact that the quartet are the only clubs he follows on Twitter.
Barcelona are one, his boyhood team back in Argentina, Newell’s Old Boys, another with English clubs Chelsea and Manchester City.

UCL : Juventus Vs Barcelona Today At 9pm

MRF2020 JuventusvBarcelona 1038x519 1 UCL : Juventus Vs Barcelona Today At 9pm

The headline news in the footballing world last week was, of course, that Cristiano Ronaldo had tested positive for Covid-19.
Said test result means Ronaldo has already missed two games for Juventus.
First up, the veteran hitman was unable to feature over the weekend as Andrea Pirlo’s side were held to a 1-1 draw with Crotone.
Then, Ronaldo would also miss Juventus’ Champions League opener on Tuesday, in which the Serie A champions were able to see off Dynamo Kyiv by two goals to nil – Alvaro Morata was on target for both strikes that day.
How Ronaldo can feature vs Barcelona
Whilst Juventus probably weren’t too concerned about not being able to call upon Ronaldo vs Kyiv, they will no doubt be desperate to have their star man back for next week’s Champions League clash.
Next up, Juventus are set to take on Hellas Verona in the Serie A on Sunday. The Bianconeri are then set to go head-to-head with Barcelona in a Champions League tie on Wednesday.
Given said outfits are clear favourites in Group C, Wednesday’s tie could go a long way to deciding who tops the table.
As a result, Juve really need Ronaldo back. And according to reports emerging from Italy, UEFA will allow Ronaldo to feature vs Barca if, on Wednesday, he can prove he at least has ‘a low viral load’.
Returning a negative Covid-19 test is not said to be necessary for UEFA, however, if Ronaldo wishes to feature vs Verona, the Portuguese standout must provide a negative test by Friday:

UCL : Manchester United Vs Leipzig Today At 9pm

Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea at the weekend did little to dispel the common criticism of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as incapable of unlocking a bunkered defense. The Reds shaded the stalemate, even coming close to a win with Marcus Rashford’s late curler, but can have no complaints with the result. Frank Lampard’s back three — more like a back five, really — kept United at bay and denied the likes of Daniel James and Rashford space to operate. New season, same old problem.
(3) Thankfully, RB Leipzig are unlikely to follow in Lampard’s footsteps on Wednesday night. The Bundesliga leaders know only one speed: all out. Whether in attack or on the press, Leipzig are aggressive and refuse to sit back. Expect them to push high up the pitch, playing the ball vertically to stay on the front foot, and overloading the flanks to gain a numerical advantage. This profile plays into counterattack-loving Manchester United’s hands, but RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is quite gifted at throwing tactical curveballs.
(4) Coming out of the international break, Solskjaer seems to have found his preferred midfield pivot: Scott McTominay and Fred. The pair started in the wins at Newcastle and PSG and the Chelsea draw, controlling the middle and providing defensive support that had been sorely lacking in earlier matches. Their strong play, though, leaves Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek out in the cold. Solskjaer has found minutes for Pogba as a super-sub of sorts, but Van de Beek is still struggling for a chance.
