Lionel Messi could finally leave Barcelona this summer as the club’s board continues to debate the possible transfer of the Argentine star as some are in favour of selling the superstar.
The 33-year-old is visibly furious with the club management and has threatened to quit the Catalan club any moment from now.
The Sun are reporting that Messi, whose contract lapses in the summer of 2021, has told the club board to restructure the squad totally otherwise he would leave.
Messi also told new Barcelona handler Ronald Koeman that he does not see his future at the Camp Nou after the side’s failure last term.
After being appointed as the new manager at Barcelona, Ronald Koeman decided to meet his wards to discuss how they will succeed as from next season.
According to the report by Radio RAC1, his meeting with captain Messi was not that fruitful as the Argentine is already considering leaving the Catalans.
The report added that Messi even ended his summer holiday on Thursday, August 20, in order for him to sort out his future with the Barcelona chiefs.
ESPN claim the 33-year-old’s uncertainty has sparked a huge debate at board level and some board members have agreed to let the maestro leave.
If he does leave, Manchester City have been rated Messi’s likeliest destination, followed by Inter Milan.
His rumbling discontent with Barca bigwigs peaked after last week’s 8-2 Champions League humbling by Bayern Munich.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Andrea Pirlo is already taking decisive measures even though he is yet to manage an official game since becoming the Juventus boss with latest reports that contracts of Gonzalo Higuain and Sami Khedira have been terminated.
It was gathered that this makes it three players that will be leaving the club in just about a week as Blaise Matuidi earlier left to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami in MLS.
Juventus released a statement confirming Pirlo’s appointment, adding that the decision was “based on the belief that the club legend has what it takes to lead squad.”
