FC Barcelona Transfer: Lionel Messi still interested in a departure?

The name of Lionel Messi is currently making good press. In recent days, the Argentine has been at the heart of a falling out with the clan of his teammate Antoine Griezmann. Relatives of the French striker believe La Pulga is the source of the world champion’s misfortunes in Catalonia. Back in Barcelona after the international break, the Barça captain implicitly raised the question of his future. As he got off the plane, he expressed his fed up with being seen as a burden on FC Barcelona. "I'm tired of always being the problem at the club," he said. Asked at a press conference, Ronald Koeman commented on the subject. For the Dutch technician, the Argentine’s place is with the Blaugranas.

Koeman pushes an overtime

“I'm not the only person who has to convince Leo to stay here. No one can predict what will happen in the future […] I hope he stays in Barcelona. What he has done for this club is incredible, ”said Ronald Koeman. If he leans for an extra time for Lionel Messi, the Barca boss admits that the final decision is up to the player. "It is up to him to choose and make the decision for his future," concluded the Blaugranas coach. It remains to be seen whether his coach's exit will be enough to retain the six-fold Ballon d'Or. Especially since Manchester City want to recruit him in the coming months. The recent extension of Pep Guardiola, the Argentine’s former mentor, follows this logic.
