Manchester United former defender, Rio Ferdinand, has disclosed that Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi, may think about leaving the club after Barcelona suffered a massive humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich recently in UEFA Champions League.
Messi’s contract expires next summer and he has not signed a renewal. This leaves many pundits like Ferdinand to think the superstar’s time at the club may be coming to an end.
While talking on BT Sport, Ferdinand said he wondered if Messi possess the patience to stay put at Barcelona and watch the club build from scratch.
He said: “The question is what is Messi thinking? What is he thinking going home tonight?”
“The level of performances that club has given and how the squad is looking at the moment in comparison to other teams around Europe. That’s the big question he will be thinking about.
“Has he got the time to sit there and wait? Football comes and goes very quickly in your life so these next two years, where he is going to have power to influence games the way he does.
“Is he going to want to do that not competing for the big titles? I don’t know.”
