Lionel Messi and Barca are reaching an undesirable end to the majority of the fans. The contracts for Messi and Barca will expire in June 2021. By law, the Argentine superstar has the right to freely negotiate with other clubs without going through Barca from January 2021.
However, in the last days of having the legal priority to retain the Argentine superstar, Barca was also not excited. A few days ago, Interim Chairman Carles Tusquets stressed that it would be better for Barca. If they agreed to sell Messi when El Pulga asked to leave at the end of August.
Coach Ronald Koeman immediately posted a forum expressing disappointment during the press conference preparing for the match. “I don’t care from the outside,” he said. But the statement from the inside did not give the team any mind to play.
Joseph Bartomeu just resigned not long ago, but right in the midst of the presidential election. Barca’s internal turmoil continued to be exposed after Tusquets’ statement. Barca’s losses in this volatile 2020 are not new to the media or the public.
This positivity does not come in a day or two. For nearly three months, coach Koeman has applied steel discipline at the Camp Nou and gradually created fighting power among Barca players. But even in the period that Barca is slowly getting on the way, declaring directly criticizing the leader Messi can create unnecessary conflicts.
The new Sport revealed that Neymar and PSG’s sporting director, Leonardo, had been talking for the past year about bringing Messi to France. This time coincided with the time when Messi expressed his wish to leave Barca, but former president Bartomeu prevented.
And the prospect of Neymar reuniting with Messi but in the PSG shirt will be closer. That is when the French capital team has the freedom to start the negotiation process with El Pulga.
