According to report, the six time balloon dior winner Leo Messi want to leave Barcelona FC
But as for now, where he is leaving for is yet to be known, but other teams like Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have all lined up to get Messi to play on their side
It is alleged that Messi is leaving Barcelona base on these few reasons;
- Messi deserves better
First and foremost, Messi deserves to play for a team that compliments his greatness as opposed to pinning all their hopes on it and ‘Messi FC’ trending on an almost weekly basis certainly isn’t unfounded.
- Champions League glory is his goal
Messi must wish he never made that infamous speech about the Champions League at Camp Nou in the summer of 2018, but it made his point pretty clear: European glory is what he’s after.
- He’s not getting any younger
Rio Ferdinand made this exact point after the Bayern defeat and to tell you the truth, it’s pretty hard to disagree with him when you consider Messi will be 34 years young when his contract expires.
- It could bolster his legacy
Arguably the biggest and most frequent criticism lodged against Messi in the GOAT debate is the fact he’s ‘only’ proven himself in Spain, whereas Cristiano Ronaldo has transcended top European clubs.
- Trophies = Ballon d’Or wins
Okay, so Messi himself is an exception to this rule, winning the most recent Ballon d’Or despite merely winning the La Liga title in 2019, but we can all agree that it’s the case more often than not.
- Perfect chance to reinvent his game
This season has been the clearest indication yet that Messi has been transitioning his game into that of a playmaker, surpassing 20 assists in La Liga and ‘only’ notching up 25 goals.
- We want a Ronaldo link-up so badly
Yeh, okay, sure, we’ve thrown the realism book out of the window for this one, but just imagine how incredible it would be for football if Ronaldo and Messi finally played in the same team together.
