Leo Messi the Argentinian superstar wants to quit Barcelona. The news emerged right after Barcelona’s shock 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou. Football club Barcelona’s main man has decided to draw the curtain to his lustful career at the club. Even though Messi has stated in previous occasions that his desire is to stay at Barcelona and even retire at the club, his ideas have changed. Leo Messi’s contract expires in 2021 but yet he wants to leave the club immediately. This article discusses clear signs given out by Leo Messi that he wants to leave Barcelona and why.
The claim that Messi wants to leave Barcelona was reported initially by journalist Marcelo Bechler. Marcelo is considered to be one of the most reliable journalists in the world of football.

For a journalist such as Marcelo Bechler to claim that Messi wants to leave immediately is a very reliable claim and something that can happen very soon.
The claim emerged right after Barcelona’s shock defeat to Bayern Munich in their own backyard. During the match, Messi looked completed drained and dejected. There didn’t seem to be any magic left in the little Argentinian superstar. After many years of carrying the weight on his shoulders, Leo Messi looks drained. The humiliating defeat to Bayern Munich was the point Messi decided the time has to come. It is a shock to all football fans around the world to see one of the greatest footballers of all time wanting to quit due to a shock defeat to a rival club.
SIGNS LEO MESSI WANTS TO QUIT IMMEDIATELY
Even though many say that the claim that Messi wants to quit isn’t true. There is plenty of evidence that proves that Messi is about to pull the curtain to his career at the football club Barcelona. During the game, Messi looked completely hopeless and lacked the energy to go forward. For the first time ever Messi looked as if he has given up. The post-match interview that is done by the captain was done by Gerrard Pique. This was a very prominent incident noticed by many football fans and analysts.
Even though Messi doesn’t speak to the media much often during the last two La Liga matches captain Leo Messi came forward. During those interviews, Messi spoke directly to the fans and apologized to the fans for losing the La Liga title. Thus to see Messi avoid the post-match interview after the Bayern defeat has evoked so much of curiosity within the fans. The past couple of days Leo has been so silent on social media even with such rumors going around.
WHY LEO MESSI WANTS TO QUIT
In the past couple of seasons, we saw how Messi carried the entire team on his shoulders. Even though the club management kept signing big names, none of these signings weren’t what Leo Messi wanted. Messi was clearly affected by Neymar’s transfer to PSG. Even though the little magician has tried several times to bring back Neymar the club management doesn’t seem to want to fulfill what he wants. With several problems with the management for several years, Messi has grown fed up with FC Barcelona. When we mean with FC Barcelona that doesn’t mean he hates the fans or the club, it’s just that he cannot work with the management anymore.
Another reason Messi might want to quit Barcelona is to explore another club before his career begins gradually decaying. By seeing his main counterpart Cristiano Ronaldo shining in several leagues across the world throughout his career. Messi is willing to take up a similar challenge and see what his future holds. His passion to conquer another league is also another reason Messi wants to leave the club.
