Lionel Messi is claimed to be no longer at home in Barcelona. The claim came after a conflict involving an Argentinian mega star with the club’s sporting director, Eric Abidal. Then the question is, Is Messi really possible to leave the Nou camp?
Over the years, Messi has been a mainstay Barcelona player on the front lines. In fact, he is considered a club for the last 15 years. Barcelona as hard as possible try to make Messi continue to feel comfortable so that those concerned do not plan to leave.
But, recently, Messi’s comfort seemed disturbed by the club legend who served as sporting director, Eric Abidal. While not mentioning the names of Messi and other players, Eric Abidal publicly blamed the player behind Ernesto Valverde’s dismissal last January.
Who would have thought, Messi did not accept his colleagues blamed for the sacking of the former Athletic Bilbao coach. The person also reacts via his personal Instagram account. He asked Abidal to evaluate, because when the team was losing, all parties were responsible.
The relationship between Messi and Abidal is claimed to have worsened. To overcome this, President Josep Maria Bartomeu brought the two camps together to make peace. Reportedly, Messi and Abidal agreed to make peace.
However, Spanish Journalist Jon Hernandez considers that this could be a moment for Messi to try out new challenges. Given, so far he has no reason to leave Barcelona. Therefore, the move Messi is very possible.
“I think the opportunity is huge. Barcelona plays in the Copa Del Rey against Athletic Bilbao, but no one talks about the game, everyone only talks about Messi and the continuation of his career at Barcelona, ”
“What is clear is that Messi is getting older, he is 33, and that could be an opportunity for other clubs and a great opportunity for Manchester City, which is always around him,” Jon Hernandez told talkSPORT.
Manchester City is touted as a club that is ready to accommodate Messi if indeed the player wants to leave. Quoted from Sportsmole, Manchester City must pay dearly to be able to get Lionel Messi’s services, and to pay his salary every week.
