Messi to leave Barcelona, following Cristiano Ronaldo's footsteps
Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona, finally decides to make an exit after spending almost two decades at the club.
Barcelona are currently under new management, and new head coach Roland Koeman are making big changes at the club.
Koeman reportedly told four players at the club that they are free to leave in the summer transfer window.
As for Phillipe Coutinho who spend his 2019/20 season with Bayern Munich on loan, were told that he will be part of koeman's starting XI for the upcoming season, as the team are being reconstructed to Koeman's wishes.
Lionel Messi handed in his transfer request at Barcelona just eleven days after they were trashed 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions league.
Could Messi be leaving because of shame and disappointment, or does he want to follow in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo and expand his legacy far beyond just one club.
