The saga that is Messi’s transfer away from FC Barcelona is promising to be one of the most brutal in history. For one Mr Messi is a legend at Barcelona and the club knows the financial implications of letting their prized possession go. I am going to say right from the start that Leo Messi is in the wrong here as far as handling the issue is concerned . That is if the contract reports are true
According to reports Messi had up to 10th June to advise his employers his intention to leave for free. That’s to say he had a whole year to think about leaving ,11June 2019 to 10June 2019. Why he waited until deadline passed is anyone’s guess.
The relationship breakdown between the two parties seemed to have been simmering beneath the surface.Messi and Sporting director Eric Abidal haven’t seen eye to eye particularly regarding the sacking of Ernesto Valverde. Seems the players have power to influence which coach stays and goes. Nonetheless I see Mr Messi heading to Manchester,which Manchester side I have no idea. It actually depends on sporting aspects as well as financial. The only two clubs able to match his mammoth wage demands are United,City and possibly PSG. La Liga losing Ronaldo and Messi in a 3 year period will surely dent it’s global appeal.
