Spanish TV show Punto Pelota often spew spurious transfer rumours, but on Thursday night the ante was upped dramatically as François Gallardo – who the show portray as some type of transfer guru – went on air to announce that Lionel Messi WILL LEAVE Barcelona next summer.
According to François Gallardo, “the Argentine will leave at the end of the season because he feels betrayed. Messi had a contract renewal agreement with the club which the club has since rejected, so Messi has decided to leave.”
Gallardo knew his views would be hated by Barcelona fans, yet the talking head announced the following on the TV show.
What I will discuss will probably make me receive some brutal reviews, but I have no problem with that. I do not care.
In late September, just two months ago, one Barca player and his advisers met with the club. The footballer wanted a review of his contract and the Catalans promised to allow that player to do so. They agreed an increase in wages. Yet After a month, the club made contact with them and explained that they could not fulfill it.
So a month ago the relationship between advisors and the club broke down. The player feels betrayed and has decided to leave at the end of the season.
The player has a verbal agreement other team, and in for February/March he will begin preparing his transfer.
The decision is taken. Leo Messi will leave the club at the end of season!
Are we really supposed to believe that Lionel Messi will walk out of Barcelona because of money? Does this compute? While it feels a tough pill to swallow, is there even the slightest possibility that François Gallardo knows what he is talking about?
