The meeting will finally be done. Jorge Messi, Lionel’s father and agent will meet tomorrow with Barcelona leadership and Josep Bartomeu. The latest from Spain is that this should be some form of finality in this saga and could see Barcelona leadership relent and let Messi leave for a fair transfer fee.

Despite reports of terms being agreed that is next on City’s agenda and other reports claim he could be in Manchester as early as next week.

The small details need to be worked out, but Messi and his father are confident in seeing a deal struck at tomorrow’s meeting.

We’ll have to wait and see. but some much needed clarity will be afforded to us tomorrow.

Hopefully it’s good news for Manchester City fans.
