Lionel Messi latest news fc barcelona – Lionel Messi has decided that he will stay with Barcelona this season until the end of his contract till next year post which he can walk away as a free agent. The folks at Camp Nou were determined at their stand that since Messi had missed the deadline to tell them he wished to leave the club, there was a 700 million euros transfer fee which had to be paid to the Catalan club. What appeared to be a battle of egos and standpoints ended in the Argentine legend accepting his defeat and deciding to put this dispute to rest.
But this is evident from the facts surrounding the scenario that this clearly wasn’t his decision. He simply couldn’t leave Barcelona this year. He will wear the stripes of the La Liga for one more reason, simply because they wouldn’t let him leave. Is this how they really want their star player to stick around? Well, its done and dusted now. But for Messi to be truly the part of the Barca team for one last season, there has to be some reconciliation from either side. The matches can’t be won if their star player feels forced to play for them.

Especially with a new coach on the side and Luis Suarez on the verge of leaving the club, Messi will feel more alienated than ever. Imagine what it is like for him. To play for a team which you really don’t want to and with a side which is only diminishing in terms of talent by the day. Most footballers have to compromise on the team they want to really play for in their careers. And even the most powerful footballer of this generation had to concede to the club’s power play. But during this process, whatever the outcome might have been, he really did take a stand. He brought to light certain issues with the club he played for 20 years. For weeks, the entire footballing community debated whether Messi should be allowed to leave or not. And this is exactly the kind of attention that he wanted to make the bureaucrats at Barca realize of how unhappy he was with the current situation.

This whole process has made him realise that he no longer has faith in the club and is only continuing for one more season to avoid going to the courts against Barca. All this mess has certainly posed a lot of questions for the La Liga giants. Is this really what they wanted? To force him to play for him? What lies ahead is certainly the world wants to see.
