Emerging reports from Spain hints that Barcelona star Lionel Messi will be leaving the Nou Camp at the end of the season.
It is claimed that the Argentina international is unhappy with the media reports that fingered him as the man behind the sack of the club manager Valverde in January.
This, according to the report has forced the World best player to call off contract extension negotiations with the Catalans as he will be seeking to leave.
It is also claimed that Messi is angry over the lack of quality in the Barcelona team, a reason that may force them to lose the La Liga title to rivals Real Madrid.

This development has placed English Premier League clubs on alert as they will be seeking to land the star player.
Supposedly, clubs like Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool will not mind the idea of Lionel Messi in their team in the coming season.
However, Man City could have the advantage of the relationship between manager Pep Guardiola and the Argentine international. It is believed that Messi will seek to work with his former boss again.
Meanwhile, talks about Messi’s destination have not been made public as it is expected that Barcelona will hold talks with him to pacify and calm the situation.
Notwithstanding, Messi would be shaming critics who have come after him severally for not trying other leagues and teams like his rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.
