The FC Barcelona lives a full season of doubts, and the rivals do not doubt in hammering him to go down even more his morals.

The cracks treat to go on, although they live surrounded of criticisms.

Although the Argentinian has left clear that is motivated and committed and that his ambition keeps intact, multiply the rumours that speak of a change of airs, that could produce, if it does not consolidate the project barcelonista, in the summer of 2020.

The last in pronouncing on this subject has been Emmanuel Petit, that has despised to the of Rosario and would not understand that one of his main beaux will throw the rest for ficharle.

"Definitely it would be a pleasure for inflates them English see it in the Premier, but do not see why a club like the Manchester City, for example, would throw the house by the window for fichar to Messi with 32 or 33 years", has finished. The 'sky blues' would be favourite in case that Messi decided to step and finish his career far of the Barça, since have economic capacity to convince him and several ex of the Barça in his technical body and director, in which it stands out a historical like Pep Guardiola.
