Is Lionel Messi about to leave Barcelona?
Recently, Argentine hitman Lionel Messi seemed to be displeased with the situations of things in Camp Nou especially since the sacking of his former boss Ernesto Valverde.
It all began when Barcelona’s director of sports Eric Abidal recently sought the wrath after playing a blame game on players over the sacking of former manager Valverde.
Messi was angered by Abidal’s position and later went on Instagram to rant, with the furious Argentine hitman telling the former central defender to be specific in his naming in order not to say ”things which are not true.”
Although Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu waded into the crisis, Messi’s future with the Catalans after the row was left in uncertainty amid interest from clubs in Italy, England and France.
