Barcelona captain Lionel Messi reportedly told the club on Sunday that, according to Esporte Interativo, he wants to leave Camp Nou this summer
Messi isn’t pleased with the Barcelona squad’s lack of commitment and the way the club is managed by the Blaugrana staff.
That follows their chaotic 8-2 defeat in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Bayern Munich in Portugal on Friday night.
We remember that Josep Maria Bartomeu, president of Barcelona, is planning a major overhaul of the club’s squad following their crushing Champions League loss to Bayern.
Messi’s Barcelona deal will expire in June 2021.
After his deal expires, the Argentine captain can leave Barca for free.
Messi ended the season 2019/20 as goal scorer for the team with 31 goals and 25 assists.
Meanwhile, Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has already asked Messi this summer to leave Barcelona.
Ferdinand thinks Messi with the LaLiga giants can’t waste the rest of his playing years.
