According to a recent report from Marca, Lionel Messi has yet to hold talks with Barcelona over a new contract with the club.
There’s increasing uncertainty surrounding where the Argentine will end up beyond the summer transfer window and while Manchester City would’ve been the best bet as to where he’d go, the impending European Super League could possibly throw a huge spanner into the works.
Messi looked set to leave the Nou Camp last summer before the club seemingly blocked his move away, whereas this time around, he actually seems more open to the idea of staying.
Again, the ESL could easily serve as the biggest stumbling block yet, and it all comes down to how things shape out in the battle between the ESL and UEFA.
The unpredictability in football right now is unsettling and, in more ways than one, it’s actually quite frightening – especially for the fans.
