Six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi is set to leave Barcelona after reports say the Argentine was left frustrated following a meeting with new manager Ronaldo Koeman.
In a private meeting between Messi and Koeman, the former Netherlands manager told the captain that “the privileges in this squad are over, you have to do everything for this team. I'm going to be flexible, you must only be thinking about the team.”
