Not long after Barcelona's humiliating 8-2 spanking at the hands of a charged-up Bayern Munich on Friday, the club's flagship player Lionel Messi is reportedly looking for a way out of Camp Nou.

The murmurings from some quarters seems to suggest that Manchester City, who suffered a Champions League exit of their own with a 1-3 defeat at the hands of Lyon on Sunday, could be where the Argentine legend is headed.
