Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has purportedly told the club on Sunday that he needs to leave Camp Nou this mid year, as indicated by Esporte Interativo.
Messi isn’t content with the absence of dedication from the Barcelona team and the manner in which the Blaugrana board are running the club.
This follows their disorderly 8-2 destruction to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals on Friday night in Portugal.
