Lionel Messi Leaving Barcelona And Why A Move To Man City Is ‘Most Likely’

Lionel Messi, who is one of the greatest players for Barcelona, could soon be leaving the club for good. After spending almost two decades with the Spanish giants, Messi has decided to determine to leave Camp Nou – and he will likely join long-time ally Pep Guardiola, according to Toni Freixa.

After disastrous Barcelona’s 8-2 defeat the announcement came in 11 days to Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. While speculation was continually being made about the move of the legendary footballer from Barcelona, this massive defeat turned out to be the final game for Messi.

“The 33-year-old’s desire to leave is driven by the fact that Barcelona has fallen off their pedestal as one of Europe’s leading sides” Freixa explains. Not only did they slack their La Liga title to Real Madrid following the interruption of the game due to the coronavirus, but they also embarrassed themselves on the Champions League stage.

Lionel Messi will be leaving Barcelona this summer transfer and “likely” move to Manchester City, presidential candidate Toni Freixa said. However, things can get a bit risky since Messi’s release clause expired in June, and he’s going to stay down contract until 2021, the Indian Express reports. As the senior Barcelona team’s Messi is preparing to leave, speculation has been raised with which he is in talks Manchester City bosses from now on, the Mirror reports.

One of the best players in the world, the 33-year-old have a very prolific career. He won the prestigious Ballon d’Or award for a record six times. Lionel steered Barcelona to 10 Spanish La Liga titles and 4 UEFA Champions League trophies. And not to mention several memorable goals during his time at the club.

It had been speculated that the Argentinian, who stunned the football world by filing a transfer request with the club last week, would change his mind if current president Josip Maria Bartomeu quit his role, but according to one of the men should he position, that will not be the case.

Pep Guardiola’s squad is currently leading the chase for the six-time Ballon d’Or winner, who believes he has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave with a free transfer, despite La Liga deciding otherwise.

Manchester City is facing rivalry from Paris Saint-Germain and Inter for the world’s best player’s signature for which the race will heat up in light of the Freixa’s words and the news that Messi had not come to practice on Monday.

Additionally, the new coach Ronald Koeman has not endeared himself to the players by freezing his long-term teammate Luis Suarez from his idea. “In life, everything comes to an end at some point, and even if there will no longer be a player like Messi, his departure would be a chance for Barca to develop into a team that is less dependent on a single player,” Lionel Messi said.

Until the time comes, nobody knows which team will Messi join, his departure from Barcelona has run wild on social media. Fans around the world share emotional notes about the Barcelona star player. FC Barcelona will never be the same again after the departure of legendary Lionel Messi.
