5 weeks of the transfer market remain.

I wonder if it will go to CAS.

After the La Liga statement yesterday there’s not a lot City can do now. It’s up to Messi’s team to try and sort it out, which could take an age. We should monitor the situation but put it on the back burner and concentrate on our real transfer priorities or this could turn into a massive distraction with no end result.

Of course La Liga would release that statement.
1) protects their league, Messi is their ejewel in the crown.

2) they hate us.

The only way Messi could wriggle out of the June clause is to go to court and argue that due to the season unexpectedly being extended, the clause should be too.

He could buy himself out of the contract/clause Tone?

Not sure how that would work. He's probably on some really complicated financials tied into shirt sales and inage rights... on top of 12 months at 2mil a month.

Or he'd have to pay his release clause of +£600m

Barcelona can try and bluff but bluff it is as they are in a very poor negotiating position.

What are their options?

Send, or let Messi stay, in Coventry and pay/fine him through his huge weekly wages? Not a smart option, as it only leaves them with a financial liability and no on field return. Then in ten months he walks away a free agent, with Barcelona getting nought.

They could fight him in court but what benefit would they get from that? Even if they won (eventually), a big if, and imagine the cost if they lost? Just would not make any sense.

They could hope he would crack and start to train/play to stay fit and up to speed, but why would he and how would his commitment be?

Barca need money from this because they know he is gone and that's the only saving grace for them. So Barca have to try and create a dispute so they can squeeze some money from City to just fast track the process, a fine line to tread.

For Messi and City it is just a waiting game to call out their buff.

The Barca presidential candidate Victor Font seems to think Messi has left Barca for good.  Messi really wants the move to City.  The next few days are going to be critical.  Personally I think he will come to City and that it'll be the signing that'll really bring city to the next level.  It's mouth watering thinking of him, Torres, Sterling, Foden, Silva, Aguero etc.
