Reports: Lionel Messi Worried Barcelona Star Could Leave

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is reportedly concerned that one of the club's most influential players could leave the Camp Nou.

Report: Messi Wants Barca To Sign Bayern Star

According to Spanish publication Don Balon, Ivan Rakitic is considering a move away at the end of the season.

It has been claimed that the Croatian is weighing up a move to either Serie A – to Juventus, in particular – or to the highly competitive Premier League.

The speculation has reportedly made Messi anxious about his teammate's future in Spain, with the Argentine feeling he is too good for the club to let go.

The 30-year-old has apparently sent a warning to the Catalan club's board against selling the midfielder, although the decision could ultimately be down to the player himself.

Rakitic has been a regular fixture in Barca's side this season, though, having featured 45 times across all competitions so far.

'Ronaldo Wouldn't Have Done What Messi Did!'

The Croatian has contributed with four goals and the same number of assists this season, and is likely to play a big role for Croatia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Do you think Barca should fight to keep Rakitic? Let us know in the comments section below.
