Messi reportedly wants to leave Barcelona after their recent defeat.
The 8-2 mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich last Friday was the nadir. Messi and co. were completely embarrassed on the biggest stage of all.
It’s been reported that Messi is now looking for a route away from Camp Nou.
There was speculation in the wake of Friday’s result and it’s set to increase following a report from Marcelo Bechler, the journalist who broke the news of Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Bechler, Messi wants to leave Barcelona this summer. He’s had enough.
According to the reliable @marcelobechler, Lionel Messi wants to leave Barcelona immediately, not when his deal expires in 2021.
Per an inside source at the club, Messi has never been this isolated from Barça, and he has no belief in the sporting project. pic.twitter.com/i1fVRgbxRi

His silence over the next few days spoke volumes and his contract is due to expire in June 2021, so he could leave as a free agent, agreeing to terms from January 2021.
However, Esporte Interativo claims this evening that Messi has already made his decision known to the club hierarchy.
This is not the first time ,there have been rumors of him planing to leave his childhood team.
