Former Barcelona president Sandro Rosell worried about Lionel Messi exit. Messi’s contract at the Catalan giants will expire in a year’s time.
Reports from Cadena Ser radio presenter and journalist Manu Carreno, told the station’s El Larguero programme on Thursday night that the Argentina international has decided to leave the Camp Nou in 2021.
The Argentine superstar has spent the entirety of his career at the Blaugrana. However, he could opt to retire elsewhere, such as a move to his boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys in his homeland previously rumoured.
“If Messi leaves Barcelona it will be very complicated for the club,” Rosell – who was in office as club president between the summer of 2010 and January 2014 – explained in an interview with ESPN Deportes.
“Everything has to change in terms of the formation and the style of play on the pitch. But also how the club works behind the scenes and the market aspects.”
“I hope Messi stays at the club for a lot of years to come. Because there is no replacement for him, there is no other player like him who exists.”
