WADOO!!SPORTNEWS: ‘Messi’s time at Barcelona could be drawing to a close’ – Suarez
Former Barcelona star Luis Suarez believes Lionel Messi’s time at the club could well be drawing to a close, Goal reports via Cadena SER.
The 27-year-old has fallen out with club president Josep Bartomeu and also endures a troublesome relationship with head coach Luis Enrique, leading to speculation about his future at the Camp Nou side. Although Suarez is confident that Messi is still happy at Barcelona, he believes the club’s lack of recent success on the pitch could lead the Argentina star to consider “a stratospheric offer” from elsewhere. “I think Messi is still happy at Barcelona because the club has helped him a lot. They have been very supportive ever since he was a kid,” Suarez told Cadena SER. “But he might start to have doubts if a stratospheric offer were to come in. And you have to be careful when a player starts to gets doubts. It could be that Messi’s era at Barcelona is nearing an end. “Barcelona did not perform as we have come to expect from them last season and people might start having doubts if another season like that happens. “Things have been said that would never have been said before. It’s still early, though, and you have to give all this some time.” Messi’s contract with Barcelona runs until June 2018.
