Why Messi may not leave Barcelona FC

There are strong indications that Messi could make a u-turn and stay at Barcelona because of his family.

Rio de Janeiro-based journalist, Marcelo Bechler, who broke the initial news of Lionel Messi quitting Barcelona has come out again that the Argentine football legend may change his mind and remain in Barcelona.

According to the journalist, family concerns may be the reason. Belcher reported that Messi fears that a change of scenery may hurt his children.

“Leo Messi could stay in Barcelona because he doesn’t want his children to experience the same thing when he himself moved from Rosario to Barcelona, so he may not change clubs for his family,” revealed, Marchelo, who writes for Esporte Interativo.
It will be recalled that Bechler broke the Neymar-to-PSG news in 2017 and was the first to report about Messi’s intention to quit Barcelona this summer.

On the other hand, Marcelo on Wednesday claimed that ‘Messi wants to play for Manchester City.’

As things stand now, Barca chiefs are ‘working internally to convince Messi to stay’ after he asked he informed the club about his desire to leave on a free transfer earlier this week.
