The Spanish giant, Lionel Messi has not signed an extension deal with his current club, FC Barcelona. The agent, however, believes that Lionel Messi should seek his future elsewhere. The super-agent, Mino Raiola, suggested him to prove his greatness somewhere else.
The Argentine International has accepted the new deal terms with Barcelona. However, Messi has still not signed the deal. And now, there are uncertainties over his future at Camp Nou. The Argentine has won the Ballon d’Or five times in his career.
Speculations are running about his new destinations. Manchester City comes up as the first name. Pep Guardiola is currently managing Manchester City and has also managed Barcelona in the past.
Mino Raiola represents players including Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marco Verratti, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Romelu Lukaku. He does not represent the FCB striker. However, he still believes that Messi should pursue his future somewhere else.
“A player like Messi must try another experience with a different club and prove how great he is.”
“Barcelona must be reinvented again.”
Furthermore, he added:
“The market, as such, no longer exists. Now it is countries who are signing players, and that isn’t football. But transfers of €200m are going to be normal from now on; it won’t be crazy to see that.”
He is the leading goal-scorer of Barcelona. He has also helped FC Barcelona to their 29 trophies which include Four UCL titles and Eight La Liga trophies.
