Lionel Messi has received an offer for a sensational move away from Barcelona by Newell’s Old Boys with Inter Milan also attempting to woo the Argentine star.
Tension have continued to rise between the six-time Ballon d’Or winner and his current club, most recently following a dispute over a coronavirus pandemic pay cut.
With an exit eminent, several clubs will flock Messi with his contract expiring in 2021.
According to TNT Sports, Messi’s hometown team Newell’s Old Boys are making an offer to the 32-year-old, alongside interest from Inter that was recently intimated by former president Massimo Moratti.
Argentine journalist Martin Castilla declared: “Leo has an offer from Newell’s Old Boys to return home, but Inter are pushing and what Moratti said is true.
“They are ready for negotiations, then the decision will be Messi’s.
“But Inter are certainly working on it.”
As you would expect, only a handful of clubs could dream of signing Messi if he does leave Spain.
But Barca are reportedly suffering significant financial issues, leading to a potential fire sale when the transfer window opens.
