Just before you get your hopes up of your team landing the Barcelona star, I believe this will have to wait until next summer. This will be possible if the star’s contract is not renewed by Barcelona (that will obviously be renewed) because Lionel Messi currently has one year left on his deal.

Apparently, Messi is not the only star in the football world that could walk for free next summer as this engulfs the likes of Arsenal with the usual suspects like Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Ox Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla all left with one year on their current contracts.
Before any other team looks at this as an opportunity they may want to consider the likes of Frank Ribery, Rose Barkley, Emre Can, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Ashley Young, Daley Blind, Giorgio Chiellini and Blaise Matuidi.
