The current season has developed very problematically for the entire football world. Nevertheless, Barcelona is perhaps one of the main FC that wants to forget the last competitive year. It got to the point that Messi can leave Barcelona.
The team underwent the protracted crisis for Ernesto Valverde`s leadership, the loss of the Spanish Super Cup, and the subsequent dismissal of the 56-year-old specialist, a failure in the National Cup. One could have turned a blind eye to the whole thing if Barсelona had triumphed in the Champions League, but it did not work out. Moreover, the terrible defeat to Bayern in the quarterfinals (2: 8) was just an issue, signaling the need for changes in the club. The players themselves are already talking openly about this.
Two European top clubs at once, Inter and PSG, are interested in Lionel Messi’s signing. Both clubs have stepped up after Messi after he had announced his desire to leave the club in a meeting with the new head coach of Barcelona, Ronald Koeman. Messi’s dissatisfaction with the situation at the club was known even before Barcelona departed from the Champions League.
France or Italy?
Representatives of PSG and Inter have already contacted the father of Lionel Messi to assess the possibility of a transfer. Messi’s contract with Barcelona expires in the summer of 2021. The Argentinean’s contract contains a clause for 700 million euros.
In the 2019/2020 season, Messi has 31 goals and 26 assists in 44 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions. Three European giants have the highest chances – French Paris Saint-Germain, Italian Juventus, and Inter. Thus, all three clubs claim the Catalan forward. It is noted that PSG can offer a huge amount of money for the transfer of the Argentine, while in Italy Messi could pay fewer taxes than in Spain, which could affect the choice of the football player as well.
