As per the Spanish reporter Manu Carreño, on the radio station of Cadena Ser, Lionel Messi Set To Leave Barcelona, He Decided to end contract extension negotiations with Barcelona.
Why Messi Set To Leave Barcelona?
After the original talks between his father and Barcelona president Bartomeu, the negotiations seemed to be well underway, but the Argentinean instead expects to find a new club after his current contract expires in June 2021.
Messi had the opportunity to leave Barca by 10 June, but opted to not use the option that was initially negotiated in Nov 2018, and decided to continue until 30 June 2021 when his contract expires at Camp Nou.
The reports indicate that Messi is frustrated with the issues surrounding the club, the leaks, the weird atmosphere around the club, and particularly with the fact that certain parts of the club are still criticized for all of that goes horribly wrong at Camp Nou.
The 33-year-old is told that he has been more and more frustrated in the club. Having said that the club has to properly spend to compete again for the European Championship, Messi is clearly not pleased about what Barcelona is currently as a team.
Messi is also reported to be furious at the club’s sporting preferences, that mostly he feels have failed to give him the right personnel to encourage him.
Messi initially wanted to stay in Barcelona if he were to, but now it seems as though he’s changed perspective. It is another setback to the club. A few months earlier Messi has said that the side didn’t have enough to win the Champions League, Setién declined to agree with this suggestion openly.
The only option for the giants in Spain to persuade Messi to stay at Barcelona is to improve its success on the field and have a more positive environment. There is no need to say that how big of a loss it would be for the Spanish club.
