Besides, coach Jurgen Klopp will also be adding players from list B (players born on/after January 1, 1998, and playing for the club for 2 consecutive years since his 15th birthday, players 16 years old can also participate if he has been registered two years earlier), which means he can add young stars like Curtis Jones, Neco Williams, and Rhys Williams.

In this year’s group stage, the Red Brigade will meet Atalanta, Ajax Amsterdam, and Midtjylland. In addition to the least famous Midtjylland, all 3 remaining teams stand out with their attacking playstyle, promising to bring exciting matches.

Messi had to take a season off to leave Barca for free

After Man City was not interested in spending money to buy Lionel Messi, Barca captain’s door to leave Camp Nou was significantly narrowed.

The source of ESPN said that the only way for Lionel Messi to legally transfer from Barca in the summer of 2020 is to commit not to play football for any team during the 2020-2021 season.

Do everything to leave Barca, but Messi is gradually at a disadvantage

According to legal experts, the unilateral contract termination clause that Messi mentioned in the fax sent to Barca on August 25 can be understood in many ways. If the two parties do not negotiate and find a common voice, they can only use legal arbitration in court.

Last weekend, La Liga representatives said that they had approached the contract signed between Messi and Barca in 2017. La Liga leaders confirmed that the contract break fee worth $ 830 million (equivalent to 700 million euros) is still valid.

At the same time, he emphasized that he will not issue a transfer permit to Messi if the fee is not paid in full, or the owner of the Camp Nou has not agreed to let the captain leave.

Being the one who actively suggested to leave, but Messi was gradually in a weak position. In addition to being stripped of his privileges by Barca and not giving in to the transfer issue, the 33-year-old striker was also turned around by Man City.

Previously, Messi have just invited Neymar to move to Man City in the summer of 2020. However, due to financial pressure, Guardiola’s team was only able to pick him up for free, instead of activating a financial package totaling $ 300 million.

According to arguments from Barca and La Liga, Messi is still on the payroll of the Catalonia team, instead of a free player as he thought. Failure to test for coronavirus and the scheduled assembly on August 31 could cost the Argentine superstar a fine of more than a million dollars.

Messi and the legal team are still trying to find a way to leave Barca, based on the term of being free to leave the club at the end of each season. But Barca said this term expired in June 2020.

Parallel to the request for an extension, Barca made more tough moves. The Catalonia team is composing a letter to reply to Messi’s fax and announced that he did not attend the training trip before the 2020-2021 season. They also asked Messi to review the offer to leave Barca or continue to contribute to the team.

Messi invited Neymar to move to Man City in the summer of 2020

Lionel Messi is said to have called to invite former teammate Neymar to move to Man City in the summer of 2020.

The information was revealed by Jorge Nicola, reporter watching the Brazilian region of sports television channel ESPN, revealed on August 26th, 2020.

Messi and Neymar played successfully at Barca before the Brazilian moved to PSG in the summer of 2017 for a record of $ 263 million. A new life in Paris is sometimes not favorable, so Neymar has repeatedly expressed that he wants to return to Barca.

Messi is always excited about the opportunity to reunite, but the financial burden makes Barca’s leadership unable to meet. This is believed to be one of the reasons why Messi is dissatisfied with President Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Messi once again expressed his desire to work with Neymar again

Currently, Neymar has two years of contract with PSG. The 28-year-old striker has also just had a successful season with his home team reaching the Champions League final and winning three domestic titles. Therefore, Neymar is not sure to change the club at this time.

PSG has also repeatedly stated that Neymar is not for sale. Therefore, Man City can only achieve the goal if it spends a large amount of money to break the contract. But this possibility is unlikely after they were “touched” by UEFA for violating the Financial Fairness Act in February.

Currently, Messi still holds the point of leaving Barca. He is said to have called his former teacher Pep Guardiola to discuss his move to Man City.

Financial risks for Man City if Messi is recruited

According to Mundo Deportivo (Spain), the Financial Justice Law can be a big obstacle to Man City if it intends to buy Lionel Messi.

Under the Financial Fairness Act (FFP) established by UEFA in 2011, clubs must not spend more than they earn. This is to control financial losses, salaries, and transfer costs, while also limiting the imbalances between clubs.

With clubs participating in the Champions League and Europa League, the Association of European Football Clubs (ECA) applies a ceiling of $ 118 million in deficit in a transfer window, in addition to the regulation that no more than $ 53 million in losses in three years. main closest. Each team’s balance sheet must be checked by UEFA’s Financial Checking Committee. Bank debts and player wages are closely monitored by UEFA.
