Reportedly, Lionel Messi has halted his contract renewal with Barça. He wanted to continue for a longer period, but now he has changed his mind. He does not want to continue with Bartomeu as the president.
Additionally, Cadena Ser reported that Messi wants to know who the next president will be and what his project is. Leo also wants to know who the manager will be, Xavi or Koeman.
Initially, the talks were going well between the club and Messi’s father, but the situation changed and the player is considering leaving the club when his contract ends in June 2021.
This is a warning from Messi to the board that they have crossed the line. Messi is angry about the Neymar situation, the Abidal situation, and the manager’s situation. Messi is also fed up with supposed leaks coming directly from the club, blaming him for decisions he didn’t take.

Ansu Fati becomes La Liga top-scorer in less than 90 minutes played
Ansu Fati has done it again. The 17-year-old scored the opening goal away against Celta Vigo in the 11th minute of the game. After his brace last week, the young talent continues to surprise, and has now become top-scorer in La Liga in less than a total of 90 minutes played.
Having said that, Fati has become the 3rd youngest player in history to reach 10 La Liga goals (with Bojan 85 days younger, and Pombo 92). Last week, Ansu already broke two new records, and it seems that week after week, he will continue to break more.
We can clearly say that Ansu Fati’s era is here. For a long time, the Catalan club has been looking for a lethal winger, capable of scoring a fair amount of goals every season. Lionel Messi was the player with all the attacking weight on his shoulders, but starting from this season, things might finally change.
