Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes it is possible that Lionel Messi’s €300 million buyout clause could be activated.
Asked whether Messi’s buyout clause could be activated following Neymar’s €222 move to Paris Saint-Germain, Guardiola responded: “I don’t know. Someone might have if they have the money and want to spend it.
“It might happen.”
Messi has agreed to sign a new contract with Barcelona, though the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is yet to officially put pen to paper.
