Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has come out to say that Lionel Messi might consider quitting the club after their 8-2 humiliation vs Bayern Munich.
Ferdinand recently revealed that the Argentine might not have the patience to stay at Camp Nou through a rebuild.
According to him, the recent level of performances and the quality of the squad in comparison to other teams around Europe will definitely make Messi give his future some major thought.
He added that Messi might not really have the time to sit around and wait for things to get better.
His words, “The question is what is Messi thinking? What is he thinking going home tonight?”
“The level of performances that club has given and how the squad is looking at the moment in comparison to other teams around Europe. That’s the big question he will be thinking about.
“Has he got the time to sit there and wait? Football comes and goes very quickly in your life so these next two years, where he is going to have power to influence games the way he does.
“Is he going to want to do that not competing for the big titles? I don’t know.”
“[Luis] Suarez and Messi are looking round thinking ‘I miss Iniesta, Xavi, I miss [Carles] Puyol’ because those guys aren’t there any more,” Hargreaves said.
“Ansu Fati came on and he looked great, but he’s a 17-year-old kid.
“The gap between Messi and who’s going to be next, you can’t [see them being successful].”
