Rabindra Dhungel 22august 2020. Catalan club Barcelona’s Argentine captain Lionel Messi has indicated that he will leave the club. In a meeting with the club’s newly appointed coach Ronald Koeman, Messi expressed doubts about his future at Barcelona and signaled his intention to leave the club.
Lately, Messi has not had a good relationship with the club’s president and coach. There was growing bitterness between them, especially over player contracts. This was the third time Barcelona had been without a title this season. Messi’s contract with the club is until June 2021. However, interrupting the new contract renewal talks, Messi said no decision would be made before the end of the season.
Messi is thinking after a humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. According to Spanish media RAC, Messi has not seen his future in Barcelona. However, he knows he is not in a position to leave the club right now.
Messi has indicated that he is serious about the future. Messi, who is on leave after the end of the season, has returned to Barcelona for talks with new coach Comin. However, he has not officially released his opinion.
Dutch coach Komyan is sure to build a team around Messi. He has already made it clear that he will only include players who seem to be immersed in the club’s plans. Messi has discussed the issue with the Commonwealth and announced that he will not be staying at Barcelona for long.
Meanwhile, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu wants to keep Messi at the club. Messi, one of the greats of world football, certainly does not want to write the history of leaving the club during his tenure.
