Lionel Messi has entered the final six months of his contract.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner is expected to leave Camp Nou for free when his contract expires this summer.
Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are frontrunners in signing the Barca legend.

“Yes, yes, I hope so,” Di Maria said when asked whether Messi could join him in Paris.
“There are many possibilities. We have to be calm and things will develop.”
Ronald Koeman found Di Maria’s comments disrespectful when he hinted he could team up with Lionel Messi.
On Di Maria’s comments, Koeman said: “It’s wrong to say such things, especially because it heats up our Champions League match even more.
“I think it’s not fair and it’s disrespectful to talk so much about one player who is still playing for Barcelona.
“I think it is disrespectful to talk so much about Leo while he is playing for Barcelona, especially before a Champions League match against them.”
