The Argentine whiz’s brain is determined to leaving Camp Nou – and it is likely that he gets together with old partner Pep Guardiola, as per Toni Freixa.
Lionel Messi will leave Barcelona this late spring and is “likely” to move to Manchester City, as indicated by presidential up-and-comer Toni Freixa.
There had been theory that the Argentine, who shocked the footballing scene by delivering an exchange demand at the club a week ago, might adjust his perspective if flow president Josip Maria Bartomeu quit his job, yet as per one of the men gunning to take the position, that won’t be the situation.
Enthusiasm Guardiola’s side are directly driving the pursuit for the six-time Ballon d’Or champ, who accepts he has a proviso in his agreement qualified to permit him to leave on a free exchange, notwithstanding La Liga managing something else.
Man City face rivalry from Paris Saint-Germain and Inter for the genius’ mark – the race for which is set to hot up considering the Freixa’s words and the news that Messi didn’t show for preparing on Monday.
“As I have gotten notification from a few sides, the choice the player has come to is one that has developed more than quite a while and is unavoidable. I don’t accept that there is any returning,” he told Goal.
Freixa clarified that the 33-year-old’s craving to leave is driven by the way that Barcelona have tumbled from their platform as one of Europe’s driving sides.
In addition to the fact that they surrendered their Primera Division title to Real Madrid in a limp manner after the suspension of play due to Covid, yet they humiliated themselves on the Champions League stage as they endured an embarrassing 8-2 thrashing to Bayern Munich.
Moreover, reports propose new mentor Ronald Koeman has not charmed himself to the players by freezing long-term colleague Luis Suarez out of his arrangements.
“Messi is a player who takes a stab at greatest achievement,” Freixa clarified. “Only he can’t make greatest progress, he needs a group for that. He doesn’t have one. Since the high pitch in 2015, Champions League achievement is absent. That is the thing that worries him. His choice is because of the negative donning advancement of the group as of late.”
It is plausible that Messi ends up rejoining with previous Barca mentor Guardiola in England.
“I think a transition to Man City is likely,” Freixa said. “With Pep, Messi encountered his most splendid years in Barcelona. It would possibly be sensible if them two cooperated once more. City, as practically all English clubs, additionally has the monetary way to assemble a group that can win anything.”
He sees this junction, in any case, as an open door for Barcelona to push ahead into another period.
“In life everything reaches a conclusion eventually, and regardless of whether there will never again be a player like Messi, his flight would be an opportunity for Barca to form into a group that is less subject to a solitary player,” he said.
“Messi’s effect on Barca’s down has been tremendous lately. The style of play was intended to give him the ball and expectation that he would accomplish something mysterious with it. Without him, the group would be more popular once more. That can likewise be freeing.”
Messi is Barca’s record objective scorer, having discovered the net for the club multiple times in 731 excursions.
