SWITZERLAND, AUGUST 15- Barcelona star Lionel Messi’s future is unclear, following on from Barcelona’s elimination from the Champions League yesterday after their shock 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich. The player could decide to leave Catalonia, according to a report from Argentine newspaper Clarin earlier today.
The report details how the 33-year-old Argentine star’s contract expires with the Blaugrana at the end of next season and currently talks regarding a contract extension are on hold.
After the club’s trashing in Europe, Messi is looking to take some time to think his future through and decide whether to leave for a new adventure or stay with his beloved club.
Messi wants sweeping changes across the club’s management, the report continues, and a failure to make changes could force the star to look for a new home.
Considering his age, Messi has roughly one large contract remaining in his career, and so could decide to have a change of air in that time. Inter are following the situation closely and are dreaming of bringing the player to Milan.
