Lionel Messi will be a free agent in the summer of this year, as his contract with Barcelona expires in June.
The Argentine star made quite a fuss last summer after submitting the letter of departure from the Blaugranas.
Somehow, the six-time Golden Ball winner managed to convince his family to continue staying at Camp Nou at least this season.
Manchester City, Inter and Paris Saint-Germain, are the teams that want the transfer of the 33-year-old with the completion of this edition.
Citizens and Parisians are leading the race, while the Nerazzurri can back off from the high salary the player demands.
But Messi is free from now on to talk to any team for a possible transfer, while Barcelona is trying to convince him to stay.
Pep Guardiola is seeking reunion with Citizens, while Neymar has invited him to play together in Princes Park. /telegraph/
