    Spoilt and overpaid, yes he’s prob GOAT but unless your ridding the world of poverty, disease, eliminating global war and uniting world peace should anyone get paid the fees he’s talking.

    Everything that’s wrong with modern day football, capitalism.

    Think Messis reputation has been tarnished a wee bit over the past couple of year. He’s far from the wee squeaky clean superhero everyone thought he was for years.

    I still love him football wise and, for me, Pep’s Barca were the greatest football team ever. Could watch it all day long.

    It's apparently because he was away pestering Pistol Pete for a place at Paradise. Pete (quite rightly) is playing hardball with the wee * though!

    I expect to see the White Smoke above CP sometime this afternoon though.

    Exactly my view on the situation mate, if he wanted away then it could’ve been dealt with a lot better. It’s not as if he’s being held hostage on a * wage ffs.

    It's Barto's fault for all of this, easily will go down as the worst president in Barça's history.

    If he goes to city there will be some serious questions asked about ffp, considering having to overturn a decision last season.

    I see the situation from the exact opposite viewpoint of some others by the looks of it.

    He’d have never have left or had wanted to leave Barca had they continued to provide squads around about him that were capable of competing. Getting absolutely pumped off Bayern in the Champions League is shameful for a club of Barca’s stature and it’s simply came to fruition because their President is a clown leading clowns. Their manager is a nobody, their squad is ageing and they blow 100 million after 100 million on guys your average Joe could tell you aren’t going to fit at Barcelona.

    This current myth that’s growing that he’s moving for money must surely be seen as the nonsense it is? He’s the best paid player in the world and there’s chat that no one is capable of matching his current remuneration - how then can that be construed to be money grabbing?

    He wants trophies and titles, clearly. He also wants his final crack at a World Cup to be under a wave of momentum from his domestic form, which clearly isn’t going to happen in the middle of a complete overhaul at Barca under another guy that is never going to succeed at Barca in Koeman.

    I personally think he's made this all so public so that Bartomeu gets the heave-ho and Koeman with him. It's a stand off at high noon.

    I find it insane the most famous club in the world cannot get a decent manager and their player recruitment is so bad.

    I imagine Man City wilL be able to match his salary.

    He’s not moving for money though. He already plays for Barcelona, who aren’t exactly short of a quid or two. It’s not like he’s been offered some sort of life changing opportunity - he’s just sick of the way Barcelona have been ran for years now.

    It’s a shame from the perspective that it wifi I’ve been cool to see him be a one club player. On the positive side, I barely take an interest in the Premiership these days but would watch whatever side he’s part of.
