Lionel Messi's Father already in talk with Man city negotiating a two-year deal after the Argentine star told Barcelona he want to leave

Lionel Messi's father is reportedly in England discussing terms with Manchester City for Argentina playmaker.

This comes a day after the six-time Ballon d'Or winner informed the club that he doesn't want to continue under new coach Ronald Koeman following Barcelona's embarrassing 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich within the Champions League and disappointing season in Spain which resulted in no trophies. 

According to RAC1 and TyC Sports, Jorge Messi has already touched down in Manchester to debate terms with the Premier League side. 

The reports say that the player's father who is also his agent is discussing a two-year deal with City, despite a reported disagreement between Barcelona and Lionel Messi over his £630million release clause at the club. 

Before Messi made his decision to go away the club, he held crunch talks with new coach Ronald Koeman following the Dutchman's appointment as Quique Setien's replacement last week.

In their discussions, Messi made his decision clear to leave the club while the new manager told him his "privileges" were over.

Messi, whose deal runs out in 2021, believes a clause in his contract means he can leave as a free agent this summer. But Barcelona are insisting that the clause expired in June, which might mean either Messi or City would need to pay his £630million release clause at the club.

A move to Manchester City would see Messi reunite with ex-Barcelona coach Guardiola in England. 

During his illustrious playing career at the Camp Nou, Messi won an astonishing 10 La Liga titles, six Copa del Reys, seven Spanish Super Cups, and 4 Champions League.
