If there are no real changes within the Catalan club this summer, Messi will ‘very seriously’ consider leaving.
It must be remembered that the 33-year-old has a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for free next summer.
Messi wants changes at all levels – the board, the bench and on the pitch. The Argentine is ‘pissed off’ after recent Champions League failures in Rome, Liverpool and now Lisbon.
Indications on Friday night are that head coach Quique Setien will be sacked imminently, with Eric Abidal and Oscar Grau also going.

Club legend Xavi Hernandez and former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino are two candidates to replace Setien.
However, controversial club president Josep Maria Bartomeu reportedly has no plans to step down.
