Messi communicated his goodbye to FC Barcelona with a burofax
Such a panic in beautiful FC Barcelona must surely have happened for many, many years. It is not only the 8-2 that their team was defeated by Bayern Munich. It was and is the next days that followed and follow. Quique Setien may have left and his place was taken by the Dutchman Ronald Koeman, the hero of the UEFA Champions League final in May 1992 when with his own lightning in the 111th minute, Barcelona prevailed with 1-0 over Sampdoria of Vialli and Mancini, but this almost went unnoticed.
The important reason that Barcelona and Barcelona have lost their sleep is the statement of Lionel Messi that he wants to leave the former European champion, and go elsewhere to continue his glorious career. As we all understand, the news fell like a bolt from the blue. Everything could have been expected by the fans of bluegrass, but they did not learn that their pride, their idol, their flag wants to change the environment.
The truth is that Lionel Messi, throughout the season, seemed to be annoyed with things and situations that were happening in the team.
For issues concerning both the playing and the off-field part. It was not just a highly failed season.
It was also the fact that no one from the administration of Josip Bartomeu asked him as friendly advice when Abidal took the decision to remove Valverde to ask his opinion. They took Setien a completely foreign body, which remained foreign.
Then the glass overflowed when the new coach, Ronald Koeman, according to the Dutch press, at some point met with Lionel Messi. There, the Argentine superstar, after the discussion they had, felt that the Dutchman did not respect him. Specifically, the Dutch coach told him:
«The privileges are over, we must all work for the team. I will be rigid, I have to think about the team «.
That was the moment when … the glass overflowed for Lionel Messi who started to think completely differently. To look to his future, but without including Barcelona αυτό
Messi is not leaving
In an exclusive interview with Barcelona, its general manager, Ramon Planes, stressed the club’s desire for Lionel Messi to stay in the team. Of course the president, Bartomeu, did not appear anywhere.
He was hiding in an office, as he knows very well that things are not going well for him and his administration.
«The news was important for Lionel Messi, but what we think – and we have said it many times – is that we think of him as a Barcelona player. We are not considering his departure».
Trincao arrived today and we hope that he will triumph next to Lionel Messi. Barcelona has been «built» many times in the past and has always come back strong. Our mind is to build a team around the best player in the world. «We have to have full respect for Lionel for what his story is.»
And Planes continued: «We do not think about anything regarding the clause of his contract. This «marriage» has given a lot on both sides, a lot of joy to the fans and we are working internally to convince him, to find the best possible solution for both him and the club. We work to make the team better, better than last year. This is the job of the staff. This is a time for hard work, the results will be seen in time «.
When asked about the information that Messi is not going to go to the training centre next Monday to undergo a coronavirus test and that he will not train with the rest of the team a day later, he replied:
«Lionel has not told us that he is not going to train with the team, but any communication between all parties involved is not going to be broadcast or discussed in public, as a sign of respect. «The effort we are making has to do with dialogue.»
The bottom line is that Messi wants to leave, and Barcelona to get an amount in the range of 100 to 120 million euros, about what Real Madrid had received when Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus. Of course, the agents of the Spanish team claim that he should have submitted a statement by July 10, as stated in his contract, in order to be able to leave as a free agent. Messi did not do such a thing, as we all know that due to the corona the football season was extended. So it would not be right to leave them in the middle of the season. That is why Barcelona wants to get this amount…
The latter, of course, will make every effort to obtain as much money as possible, so the good lawyers on both sides will have the reason.
Paris, City, United, Inter
At the moment, at least with what Minguella’s former agent had, Messi is closer to Inter, where his father has already moved their headquarters to Milan for tax purposes. Pep Guardiola has spoken to him and wants him, as well as United as he could lead her to the top of the Premier League, but our information from Paris says that the president of Paris, Nasser El Khelaifi, is said to be determined to take him. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in his team, so that together with Neymar they can create the MSN again. The road is provided long…
