Lionel Messi has been heavily linked with a move away from his boyhood club Barcelona ever since he handed in a transfer request in the summer transfer window of 2021. The Argentine has been heavily linked to the likes of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Mauricio Pochhetino’s Paris Saint Germain ever since he handed in this particular transfer request. At that particular point, however, this specific request was denied by Barcelona and La Liga as an organization given the fact that the 33-year-old still had a whole year left on his contract. The Argentine, however, was reportedly to leave in the upcoming summer transfer window in 2021 as his contract is nearing its end.
Lionel Messi however is understood to have made no contact with any other club as of now despite being heavily linked to the Premier League and the Ligue 1 giants respectively. The six-time Balon D’or winner has reportedly grown completely sick of all the media speculations and assumptions made about him and his potential move in the summer. As of now, the Argentine is completely focused on Barcelona.
Lionel Messi unsure about his future
The fresh reports according to Goal suggest that Lionel Messi has not made any decision as of now so far. The player is focused on his current season with Barcelona and he is disinterested in any other club as of now. The reports also suggest that the player will be waiting for the season to completely end first in order to make a decision. This decision can also mean that he ends up staying at the Nou Camp after all and not leave the La Liga for Manchester City or Paris Saint Germain despite being so heavily linked to the two top European sides.
This news should bring comfort to the people at Barcelona and their fans to let them know that their greatest player of all time is focused on them as of now. However, only the arrival of the summer transfer window of 2021 will let us know the future of Lionel Messi and his potential destination.
