A shock report recently suggested that Lionel Messi has dropped a bombshell on FC Barcelona, telling the club’s bosses he wants to leave immediately. A source from the Blaugrana has since responded to the rumour.
The 33-year-old is believed to be upset with the club’s board and does not believe in the project anymore.
Marcelo Belcher – the journalist who broke the news that Neymar would leave Barca to join Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 – has claimed Messi wants out of Barcelona immediately, and not just when his contract expires in 2021.
The Esporte Interativo journalist has claimed that “Messi wants to leave Barcelona now”, insisting he has “never seen Messi so outside of Barca in so many years here”.
