According to Catalan newspaper Sport, Lionel Messi’s agent Jorge Messi has met with FC Barcelona president Bartomeu today. The two parties could not reach an agreement, as Bartomeu insisted on not letting Messi leave, while the Argentine is looking for a friendly exit.

When being asked about his son’s future earlier this morning, Jorge replied that he ‘does not know’, and that it seems ‘difficult’ for him to stay at Barcelona.

Lionel Messi seems quite clear about his intentions: he wants to leave the club, but is not looking for trouble. Bartomeu, on the other hand, does not want to let Messi go, especially during his final months of presidency.

Messi himself has still not spoken since the 8-2 disaster at Lisbon, thus among fans, there is still small hope that there is a chance of him staying at the club.

We would have to wait and see where Messi will end up, but it is clear that Manchester City and Juventus are happily willing to have the Barcelona legend.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

Just in: Neymar’s entourage confirms renewal with PSG as he ‘likes the project’

Fabrizio Romano has broken huge news as part of Neymar’s contract situation with Paris Saint-Germain, which all but officially announces that the Brazilian will be staying in France, contrary to what has been reported recently. The report suggests that that he will sign his extension soon, which is bound to include a massive UCL bonus.

Neymar’s entourage have confirmed his decision to stay with the Paris outfit in conversation with France Football, saying, “Neymar wants to stay at PSG. He sees that the club is growing. He likes the project.”

PSG have, in fact, actually enjoyed success in Europe in the recent past. They reached the Champions League final last season, crumbling only to the unstoppable Bayern Munich by a mere one goal to nil. Since then, they have fired Thomas Tuchel, and hired Mauricio Pochettino, who inspired an incredible victory against Bayern in this season’s Champions League quarters. Spearheaded by Neymar and Mbappe, the capital-side hit the defending champions for three goals, conceding two.

Despite their lead in the UCL, they do not have a stronghold on the trophy with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid still in the running. It becomes a lot more problematic when you realise their situation in Ligue 1.

PSG look far from comfortable in the league, which is a shocker to say the least. As it stands, Pochettino’s mean are in second place with 66 points, three adrift of Lille who top the table with one of the most impressive defensive records in Europe.

A season without either of the big trophies might force Neymar to have a change of mind, with the Barcelona project looking much more comprehensive under Joan Laporta. In fact, the new President might look at the Brazilian as the key that will allow Lionel Messi to stay at the club. We do the same rumours annually, so it is only fair if any of these ‘confirmations’ are turned on their head in the coming weeks.
