Lionel Messi cuts his holiday short to meet with Ronald Koeman TODAY for talks to decide his future after the new Barcelona manager admitted he may have to ‘convince’ star player to stay
Lionel Messi has dramatically cut short his holiday in order to hold urgent talks with new Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman about his plans to rebuild the crisis-stricken club.
Messi’s future at the Nou Camp is far from certain after Barcelona were ruthlessly thrashed 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week, prompting the departure of Koeman’s predecessor Quique Setien and sporting director Eric Abidal.
And according to Mundo Deportivo, Messi is returning from his family holiday in the La Cerdanya region of the Pyrenees to hear Koeman’s plans for himself.
