Juventus reportedly make contact with Lionel Messi's father in a bid to instigate negotiations for the Barcelona forward.

Juventus have reportedly emerged as the latest club to make contact with the father of Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

As a result of the Argentine requesting a transfer away from Camp Nou, a number of top European teams have been linked with an approach for the 33-year-old.

While Manchester City are regarded as the clear favourites, Paris Saint-Germain are also said to have instigated talks with Jorge Messi.

However, according to L'Equipe, Juventus have gone down the route of enquiring whether the attacker would be interested in a switch to Turin.

The report suggests that the Italian champions are tempted to break their wage structure in order to form a fantasy partnership of Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

Messi's father is said to have previously informed PSG that his son favours a transfer to Man City, where he would be reunited with Pep Guardiola.
