Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players of all time without any hesitation. The Argentinian star has enjoyed a successful career that puts him in the GOAT conversation and mostly because of Barcelona.

We know that Messi is what he is thanks to the La Liga giants, but the striker might be considering leaving Catalonia if the club doesn’t provide certain conditions next year. Messi has shown his quality to unbalance games in a blink, but that is something he can’t always do it without the proper help.

Besides him, there aren’t many assets that Barcelona could use in the attack. Luis Suarez is currently sidelined and Antoine Griezmann hasn’t made any real impact on the team. Back in the midfield, there isn’t a player that can provide Messi as good as Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez did.

Messi is nearing 33 years old, and that means his best years are quickly finishing. Don Balon have suggested he will look to leave next season if the club doesn’t make huge improvements to build a winning side in the summer.

They add that the arrival of Quique Setien hasn’t impressed Messi, and it seems like he has the option of Argentina, Inter Miami in MLS or a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. It looks like he’s only warning the club, but if the nonconformity continues, perhaps these rumors would become a reality.
