The speculations around Lionel Messi’s future keeps coming up, as the ‘World best player’ has one-year left in his current contract.
After the 8-2 defeat and Barcelona’s exist from the Champions League, it was alleged that Messi 33, has reportedly demanded that the club allows him to leave in the summer, as one of his most likely destination would be Manchester City, which is coached by his ex-Barcelona Manager, Pep Guardiola.
Samuel Eto’o, 39, who played alongside Messi in Camp Nou, has urged his former employers to do whatever it takes to make Messi finish his career at Barcelona, as he claimed Barcelona is Messi and the name should be changed if he is allowed to leave.
“Barcelona is Messi and I think if Messi decides to leave, we’ll have to change the name of the club too. We have the best player in the world, and we must do everything to ensure he finished his career here.” Eto’o said.
In your own opinion, do you think Messi can still perform if he leaves Barcelona?
