Lionel Messi is currently overthinking his future as a player of FC Barcelona beyond next season. Spanish radio outlet Cadena SER has assured on Thursday that Messi has decided to stop the negotiations with the club over his contract extension and that is uncertain if the 33-year-old wants to continue his Barcelona career.
One of the main reasons for Messi to end negotiations would be the ‘continuous leaking to the media which benefit the club and board’. Journalist Manu Carreno said during the radio show: “This information makes it appear as if Messi was responsible for certain decisions at the club, whilst he has nothing to do with these.”
“The negotiations between Barcelona and Jorge Messi (father and agent) started off well and positively. It appeared an agreement would have been close, but the latest developments at the club have made Messi overthink his future and that has made him decide to stall the talks with an immediate effect”, Carreno said.
