A Spanish press report revealed, today, Friday, the secret of the refusal of Argentine Lionel Messi, the Barcelona star, to continue with the Catalan team during the next season.
Radio Catalonia had reported that Messi had informed his new coach, Ronald Koeman, that he saw his future outside the club more than the possibility of continuing with Barca.
According to the “Cherngitto” program, Messi is angry at the possibility of continuing with Barcelona, because doing a good job with the team during the next season, will add to the balance of the club president, Josep Maria Bartomeu at Camp Nou.
It was previously reported that Messi has ignored phone calls from Barcelona board members since yesterday.
The Spanish program added that Messi recently received a call from Juan Laporta, the potential candidate for Barcelona’s presidency in the upcoming elections.
