A huge 2-8 defeat against Bayern Munich not only leaves Barcelona eliminated in the Champions League and officially empty this season, but also puts them at risk of losing the biggest star in the history of the club: Lionel Messi.
Messi calculated the door “to escape” from Barca
The Brazilian Esporte Interativo page revealed that the Barca striker had thought and decided to ask the leader “Catalunya giants” to allow him to leave the club in the summer of 2020. The reason is because Messi has lost confidence in the plan Development of the current leadership team.
Esporte Interativo is the first news site to report that Neymar moved to PSG in 2017. However, if Messi wants to leave Barcelona, which club could the Argentine star move to this summer?
1. Man City
Barcelona and Man City have both been bitterly eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Champions League this year in Lisbon (Portugal). According to the Daily Mail, coach Pep Guardiola has long wanted to reunite his former student Messi and the Etihad home team are willing to spend money to get a striker who has won 6 “Golden Balls”.
Pep Guardiola wants to reunite Messi, but Man City no longer seems eager to buy this old player
Man City has basically been “green light” by the Court of Arbitration and Sports (CAS) to continue to spend widely on shopping after a successful appeal of a two-season European Cup ban from the European Football Federation (UEFA ). With the huge pockets of Arab bosses, the current Premier League runner-up is also fully capable of recruiting Messi with a transfer fee and a huge salary regime.
But Messi is 33 years old and he is not sure to choose the Premier League – a tournament that is the fastest and most extreme in the world to play against the opposing defenders with superior body shape.
As for Man City, Messi now does not seem to be suitable for their shopping policy. The last time the Etihad home team bought a player over 27 years old for more than 15 million pounds was in 2013. “The Citizens” has never spent more than 15 million pounds to buy players over 28 years old. Meanwhile, Messi is 33 years old.
2. Inter Milan
Inter Milan, headed by Chinese President Steven Zhang, has no shortage of money and is ready to meet Messi’s huge salary of 65 million euros / season if he leaves Barca this summer. M10 also has a very close friendship relationship with fellow countryman Javier Zanetti – who is currently Inter Vice President. To Serie A, “El Pulga” can also rematch rival Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus).
Messi and Zanetti have a very good relationship
But Inter for many years still “live under the shadow” Juventus in Serie A. Champions League glory has also left the “Nerazzurri” for a long time since the last time they were crowned under former manager Jose Mourinho since five seasons. 2009/10 award.
Messi and his father and agent – Mr. Jorge Horacio recently bought a house in Milano, but it is not certain that Barca’s No. 10 star has chosen Inter Milan as the new stop in his career.
3. Al Sadd
According to Mirror, Messi is also likely to go to West Asia to join Al Sadd (Qatar). This Middle Eastern team is led by coach Xavi Hernandez – former famous Barca midfielder that Messi has for many years “side by side”. Santi Cazorla, the Arsenal star has just left Villarreal to dock in Al Sadd. But the fact that Messi left Europe to go to a little-known team and be Xavi’s student at this time seems unlikely.
Will Xavi be the teacher of former teammate Messi?
4. Newell’s Old Boys
Messi once expressed his wish to return to his hometown Argentina to wear Newell’s Old Boys – a teenage club before he moved to Europe and forged at Barcelona’s La Masia youth academy in 2000. So maybe, he hasn’t thought about going home to play football yet.
5. Paris Saint-Germain
If you go to PSG, Messi will contract with former teammates Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to form a scary “trio of assassins”. But Ligue 1 is a boring tournament and if not careful, this may be the place where “talent burying” of the striker born in Rosario (Argentina) makes him regret if he leaves Barca to land at the home park team. The Princes.
The future of Lionel Messi will become very hot next week, when in addition to Inter Milan there are two more representatives of the city …
