Messi silent as he contemplates Barcelona future

Published

Inter have all the resources needed to sign Messi from Barcelona

Bayern Munich’s 8-2 victory over Barcelona in the Champions League was a result that had, in truth, been years in the making, however there could be dire consequences with Lionel Messi now debating his own future at the Camp Nou, even though he is keeping silent at this time.Quique Setien will be dismissed from his position as coach in the coming hours and there will also be significant personnel changes in the technical department.

Josep Maria Bartomeu isn’t expected to resign, but there could be an early calling of elections, whilst Gerard Pique has even offered to leave the club if that helps.Messi has been silent since the final whistle in Lisbon, with the embarrassment he has suffered far outweighing the previous eliminations to Roma and Liverpool.There has been a sense that frustration has been building up inside the Argentine for many months, and his public statements after the LaLiga Santander match with Osasuna were both uncharacteristic and damning.He has been left with an inadequate team around him since even before Ernesto Valverde was appointed as coach.

Xavi Hernandez has never been replaced, whilst the perfect candidate to do just that in Thiago Alcantara was playing a starring role for Bayern Munich in Friday’s demolition, despite having come through the La Masia academy.Messi is now waiting to see how the Barcelona board responds to the latest disaster, whilst at the same time he is thinking about his future with no scenario being taken off the table.

His current contract is due to run until June 2021, and he hasn’t yet renewed or shown any signs of willingness to do just that.Contract Termination Now there are three possible scenarios, thee first is the immediate termination of his contract which is the most complicated avenue of all.Bartomeu would do everything possible to ensure Messi couldn’t leave in this manner. He knows it would be the hammer blow to a disastrous term at the helm, and he would be known as the president who let Messi go.However, the player himself is very hurt.

It’s been five years since he won the Champions League and time is running out to do it again, furthermore his contemporary Cristiano Ronaldo has marked the latter years of his career with incredible success in the competition.Messi knows that the club is being run poorly and he has been very critical of the work the technical department has done, especially after they failed to bring Neymar back, despite the captain’s request.

The second scenario is leaving when his contract expires at the end of the 2020/21 season.This would mean that he wouldn’t renew with the Catalan giants and that from January onwards he would be able to discuss terms with non-domestic clubs.This is a very uncomfortable situation for Barcelona because for every day he hasn’t signed a renewed deal, there will be rumours about his future.

Continuing with a renewed contractThe third scenario is one which in previous months appeared the most likely, that Messi would renew his contract.It would only be a yearly commitment as Messi doesn’t want to be tied to the club for a long period, but this option now seems less attainable, at least at this difficult moment.Right now he has no intention of signing a new contract in the near future.

Transfer News: ‘Has he got the time to sit there and wait?’ – Ferdinand hints Messi could consider Barcelona exit

Lionel Messi Asked If He Would Pass To Cristiano Ronaldo If They Played Together

The Argentine will see his contract expire next year and may be forced to ponder a move away
Rio Ferdinand has said Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi may consider leaving the club following their 8-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich on Friday.

The Blaugrana conceded four goals in either half as they were put to the sword by the rampant Bundesliga champions in the Champions League quarter-final.

The result will likely see several changes made at Barcelona, with president Josep Maria Bartomeu hinting as much after the match.
Head coach Quique Setien and director of football Eric Abidal are among those rumoured to be departing, while Bartomeu himself may not be safe with presidential elections set to take place next year.

No departure would hurt Barca nearly as much as Messi, though, with the club still reliant on the 33-year-old superstar.

Messi’s contract expires next year and he has yet to sign a renewal, leaving many to ponder the previously unthinkable scenario of the Argentine playing for another club.

Ferdinand is among that group, with the former Man Utd defender wondering if Messi has the patience to stay at Camp Nou through a rebuild.

“The question is what is Messi thinking? What is he thinking going home tonight?” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

“The level of performances that club has given and how the squad is looking at the moment in comparison to other teams around Europe. That’s the big question he will be thinking about.

“Has he got the time to sit there and wait? Football comes and goes very quickly in your life so these next two years, where he is going to have power to influence games the way he does.

“Is he going to want to do that not competing for the big titles? I don’t know.”

Another former Man Utd star, Owen Hargreaves, added that Barca do not have the talent around Messi that they did during the club’s heyday under Pep Guardiola.

“[Luis] Suarez and Messi are looking round thinking ‘I miss Iniesta, Xavi, I miss [Carles] Puyol’ because those guys aren’t there any more,” Hargreaves said.

“Ansu Fati came on and he looked great, but he’s a 17-year-old kid.

“The gap between Messi and who’s going to be next, you can’t [see them being successful].”

Inter have all the resources needed to sign Messi from Barcelona

Former Inter president Massimo Moratti has claimed that current owners Suning Holdings Group have “everything is takes” to sign Lionel Messi from Barcelona as fresh rumours continue to swirl regarding the Argentina captain’s future.

Messi has voiced his disapproval at the level of performances at times in 2019-20, while the club’s transfer dealings and head coach appointments have many wondering whether the six-time Ballon d’Or winner is considering a move elsewhere.

And while Moratti ultimately failed in his attempts to lure Messi to San Siro during the early stages of his Barca career, the 75-year-old businessman believes that the club’s new owners have everything that would be required to land their dream signing.

“I am just a simple fan of Inter now, so I don’t have any inside information,” Moratti told Quotidiano Sportivo. “Having said that, I do know this: Suning have everything it takes to bring Messi to Milan, in terms of both resources and competence.”

One pursuit that did prove successful was the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United, a move that Moratti initially saw as a massive gamble – especially as it helped spell the end for former captain Mauro Icardi at the club.

Now, however, Moratti admits he was wrong to doubt Antonio Conte’s push to sign the Belgian, with the striker proving a fantastic addition to the club alongside fellow frontman Lautaro Martinez.

“I got it wrong on Lukaku,” Moratti confessed. “In all honesty, I thought he was just physically strong and feared we would regret losing Icardi. Instead, Romelu is a champion, always helps his team-mates and has good vision.

“Antonio Conte was right to demand his signing and then did so well to improve him. Winning the Europa League won’t be easy, as there are four very competitive sides left, but I do hope Inter can be the next Italian club to lift a European trophy.”

One Serie A side that will not be lifting a European trophy this season is Atalanta, who lost out to two late PSG goals in painful fashion.

And while Moratti congratulated Gian Piero Gasperini’s side for their Champions League efforts, his words for Juventus, who were knocked out by Lyon, were not so kind.

“It’s one thing to be eliminated by PSG, another to go out against Lyon, the team seventh in Ligue 1. There is simply no comparison,” he sniped.

“Inter waited for 45 years between Champions League trophies, so Juve are pushing 25 years, maybe they’ll be quicker than we were…”
