Leo Messi continued to show determination to leave Barcelona when he was absent from the latest training session under the direction of coach Koeman.
Before the 2019/20 season, hardly anyone thought Messi could leave Barcelona. However, that is about to become a reality. The Argentine superstar sent a certified third-party (burofax) fax to Barcelona last week of his wish to leave.
However, Barcelona flatly rejected this offer from Messi. Like an act of retaliation, Messi did not appear during the medical examination and Covid-19 test before entering the new club season which took place on Sunday (August 30).
On the morning of August 31, a lot of reporters gathered in front of Barcelona’s training center to wait for Messi to appear in the club’s training session, but this superstar was still silent. According to Sky Sports, the M10 will not train with Barcelona because it feels not part of Coach Koeman’s squad.
Currently, Barcelona has not had an official announcement about Messi’s last two absences. Will the Argentinian superstar announce to leave the club or stay in the spontaneous way? If the M10 is absent with a good reason, Barcelona should disclose it to avoid misunderstanding. In contrast, Barcelona should also act to sanction the disorganized behavior of the Argentine striker.
Previously, another Barcelona player, Ousmane Dembele, suddenly quit training for no reason. The club has handled this very well with very quick updates. However, this incident does not seem so simple.
According to Sky Sports, Messi has submitted a request to meet the management of the team directly this week to resolve his future. Mundo Deportivo also revealed that M10’s father, Jorge Messi – will represent his son to meet with President Josep Bartomeu on Wednesday (September 2) to find the most peaceful solution for the parting of the century. this.
Currently, La Liga has sided with Barcelona when it denied a special clause to help Messi freely leave the Nou Camp this summer and recognized the contract break fee of both sides is 700 million euros. That is an unbelievable price for any team.
The best possibility for Messi on the negotiating table is that Barcelona agrees to let go for a reasonable price. In the worst case, the Argentinian superstar may need to take the winter transfer window to find a new park and leave after the 2020/21 season ends.
