Messi considering Barcelona exit following Abidal controversy

February 6, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Reports from all over Europe suggest that the Argentine ace is not willing to stand any more controversies with its executives.

It has been one hell of a week for Barcelona. It all started with Eric Abidal's comments about Valverde's sacking. Then, Lionel Messi's passionate defense of his team-mates made headlines around the world, followed by the meeting between the Argentine, president Bartomeu and the French exec, Last, but not least, the team's Copa del Rey elimination at the hands of Athletic confirmed a slow start of the year for Los Culés...and that's not all.

According to a report by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Lionel Messi is tired of dealing with all controversy surrounding Barcelona, and he has allegedly decided to leave the club this summer. The footballer is still under contract until 2021, but he would use the exit clause included in his deal to end his tenure with Los Culés.

To make matters worse, Messi would leave the Catalan club on a free transfer, as mentioned in his contract. 

The Italian journal reveals that five teams have already approached Messi's inner circle to tempt the player with massive wage offers. The alleged teams that have contacted Messi's entourage are Manchester City, Manchester United, Juventus, PSG and Inter Milan.

The reported offers from all these teams would range between $55M and $88M yearly, which would mean a massive increase from his current deal at Camp Nou.

Messi has repeatedly stated in interviews that he has no intention to leave the club, but none of those interviews took place this week, when the club gave him more than one headache.
