Lionel Messi: Stunned Real Madrid with a late winner

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has thrown his future at the club into further doubt with his most recent comments.

Uncertainty over the Argentine’s future at the Nou Camp is growing, with speculation that he could leave the club next summer.

While the Barca hierarchy continue to insist that Messi will not leave the club, he is yet to sign a new deal with the Catalan giants.

Manchester City are reportedly admirers of the 30-year-old, with Pep Guardiola having worked with Messi and helped him become the club’s top scorer.

Odds have been slashed on the forward moving to the Etihad Stadium, with PaddyPower dropping their price from 25/1 to 16/1.

Now, Messi has fuelled the speculation himself by hinting his long-term future might not be at Barca.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the coming years or how I’m going to feel,” Messi said. “I live from day to day. I am not focused on the future.”
