DBasia.news – Lionel Messi received another warning if he forced himself to leave Barcelona. The Argentine striker is considered to be losing his reputation.
Messi almost left Barcelona in the transfer market last summer. The owner of 6 Ballon d'Or was uncomfortable with club management.
Initially, Messi wanted to move using his special clause. La Pulga was allowed to leave for free each season until 2021, or when his contract expires.
However, Barcelona denied it. In fact, the club still maintains it with a release clause worth 700 million euros or around Rp. 12 trillion.
As a result, Messi chose to give in because he was reluctant to make a fuss with the club. However, the player who has presented 34 trophies and scored 636 goals for Barcelona still has the opportunity to leave next season, because his contract has not been extended.
So far, it is rumored that Messi is going to the Premier League. Manchester City was reported to be the leading club that would sign him, due to the presence of Pep Guardiola, who incidentally was his former coach at Barcelona.
Javier Tebas, the LaLiga boss, reminded Messi of his desire to leave Spain. Its reputation is considered to be damaged.
“We've been lucky enough to enjoy it for years, but Messi should think carefully about what he will do in the future,” Tebas told AFP, which was launched Daily Mail.
“If Messi leaves Barcelona, his current reputation and the one he's built so well will be damaged.”
“He's going to get a better offer from a financial perspective, but his reputation after more than 20 years, I think he should keep it,” he said.
