Report: Messi seriously considering Barcelona exit

Gloomy reports emerge from meeting between Messi and Koeman

August 20, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The Argentine footballer met with the newly-appointed coach despite being on holiday to clarify his situation with the Blaugrana side.

During his unveiling ceremony at Camp Nou, coach Ronald Koeman admitted that Lionel Messi was key to his project with the Blaugrana side. The Dutch boss stated how he would take the first chance he had to talk to Messi in order to see what he thinks about his future at Camp Nou, but unfortunately for him and for Barcelona fans, that meeting did not have the best of news for everyone involved in this saga.

According to a report by RAC1, the meeting between Messi and Koeman took place at the player'home. There, the Argentine ace allegedly told Koeman that he sees himself "further away than closer" to Barcelona. The Catalunya-based radio station added that Messi went on to tell Koeman that he is aware of the difficulties he would face if he chose to leave Barcelona since he has one year left in his current deal.

Following this report, Spanish newspaper As revealed that the player's inner circle did not confirm or deny Messi's words, but they ended up admitting that the gathering had taken place. Now, the player's agent has to come up with an offer that may satisfy Messi's desire to leave and Barcelona's wishes to cash in on a potential transfer.

During the coach's unveling ceremony, Ronald Koeman admitted that he wanted all the players in his squad to be truly committed to Barcelona's cause. If Messi has told him he is not fully happy at Camp Nou, does this mean that the Dutch boss will not try to twist his arm to keep him around? Let's see how the transfer saga of the summer unfolds.
