Barcelona star Messi gives green light to sell Alcacer to Premier League club

Barcelona have been given the all clear by Lionel Messi to sell Paco Alcacer.

A clause in his new contract means the Argentine is consulted on the Blaugrana's transfer dealings.

And according to Don Balon, Messi has agreed that Alcacer is expendable.

Alcacer's style of play has lead Barca to try and find a suitor in the Premier League. However, the 24-year-old is said to prefer a move back to previous club, Valencia.

The Spain international has scored 13 goals in 43 appearances since joining Barca from Los Che in 2016.

Everton and Crystal Palace are two Premier League clubs that have been linked with Alcacer in the past.
