It is no secret that Lionel Messi is not happy and it is not just because of Barcelona’s problem on the pitch.
Messi’s relationship with the current board has not been particularly smooth as he would have loved.
Cadena SER reported on thursday night that the Argentine has halted negotiations over a contract renewal and that he could walk away from the Camp Nou in the summer of 2021. Although the club still remain optimistic about a contract extension and are in denial of an exit rumor surrounding the Argentine.
Messi is thought to be waiting to see what the club is planning in terms of squad reconstruction and or the outcome of the next club election.
It is true that Messi is in control of his own future, having recently opted for short contract extension of one or two years .
Now with uncertainties whirling around the club, the apparent dissatisfaction with the current coaching staff and with the obvious fact that Messi has given his all to Barcelona. Perhaps it’s time, the six time ballon d’or winner bid farewell to a club where he will forever be remembered as an all time great.
