Lionel Messi is determined to leave Barcelona this summer – Ronald Koeman lined up as next manager

Lionel Messi could be playing his last game for Barcelona, ​​with sensational claims the captain is ‘determined’ to leave this summer, reports in South America have revealed.

Meanwhile, reports in Spain suggest that Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman is being lined up to replace Quique Setien, who looks certain to leave after the Champions League humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich.

The Catalan giants dropped their La Liga title to Real Madrid, and Bayern ended their campaign short of the trophy on Friday evening after holding them to eight goals – two of which came from Barcelona-owned Philippe Coutinho.

The result has spooked the club, to the extent that Brazilian outlet Esporte Interativo, who fronted the news of Neymar’s move to PSG, say Messi is ready to give up too. He is actually more than ready – he says he is ‘committed’ to an exit this summer, a year before his contract expires in 2021.

Where he might go is anyone’s guess. Inter have been linked in the past, while a meeting with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City was also briefly discussed, but none of the rumors have been particularly convincing. A return to Argentina with Neville’s Old Boys? MLS bound? We can speculate, but there’s really nothing to indicate what direction he’ll go if he fulfills his apparent desire to leave.

Ronald Koeman is now ‘best placed’ to become Barca manager, reports Marca.
