Lionel Messi’s future in Barcelona has been the subject of much speculation lately. Messi is said to be able to leave the club in the near future.
The Argentine star contract at Camp Nou will expire in June 2021. However, negotiations on Lionel Messi’s new contract with Barcelona have reportedly been deadlocked.
Word got out that Messi had stopped talking about a new contract with Barcelona. Messi was very upset with the situation at Barca.
Messi was fed up with the condition of the team because there was a split in the Barca dressing room. In addition, he was fed up with Barcelona displaced by Real Madrid from the top of the La Liga 2019-20 standings.
Thus, Barcelona has a great chance of losing the star. The Argentine striker could walk away from Camp Nou for free in the summer of 2021.
