- Lionel Messi’s contract at Barcelona will lapse in the summer of 2021
- The Argentine is yet to renew his deal at the club and a possible exit is imminent
- Rivaldo claims football agents are already dreaming a Ronaldo-Messi double at Juventus
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could finally form a formidable Juventus’ attack as football agents are dreaming a sensational team-up for the fierce rivals with reports that the Argentine is set to leave the Spanish giants.
Messi’s contract at the Catalan club will expire next year and he is yet to put pen on paper for a further extension, raising concerns about his future.
According to former Brazilian star Rivaldo, football agents are teaming up for a possibility of getting Messi to switch to Juventus when his contract lapses.
The former Barca star told Betfair: "With all this speculation, I believe that some agents are already dreaming about a Messi-Ronaldo double at Juventus and how big it will be around the globe.
"If that happened there would be a world "boom."
Barcelona fans and followers will hope that things change if former club star Xavi Hernandez returns to manage the club as that could be the only condition for Messi to remain there.
Catalan chiefs have been left worried when Lionel Messi confirmed that he would love to leave the side when his contract expires next summer.
Messi's decision might be as a result of his reported feud with current handler Quique Setien who has been under serious fire since football resumed.
There have been reports however that Barcelona bosses are preparing to fire Setien and bring in Xavi at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona picked up their first win in three games after a convincing 4-1 win against Villarreal on Sunday, July 5, at the Estadio de la Cerámica.
Quique Setien’s men got off to a flying start as they took the lead in the 4th minute. Some lovely work down the left resulted in Alba pulling a cross back inside the box which Pau Torres turned into his own net.
But the home team were back on level terms after an excellent break started off by Samuel Chukwueze sees Cazorla collect the ball in the box and fire in a shot which was saved by Ter Stegen.
