- Lionel Messi has been advised by Sergio Ramos for him to stay at Barcelona
- Sergio Ramos stated that it won't be nice for the Spanish League if Messi leaves
- The Argentine footballer has been linked with a move to Manchester City
Sergio Ramos who is the captain of Spanish champions Real Madrid has stated emphatically that Lionel Messi has the right over his future, but advised the Argentine to stay at the Nou Camp.
Lionel Messi's future at the Camp Nou has been the major talks among pundits and football fans around the world since last week.
The Argentina international told Barcelona chiefs that he wants to leave following embarrassing defeat against Bayern Munich in which Messi failed to score.
Last two seasons, Barcelona were also sent out of the Champions League in an embarrassing fashion losing 4-0 against Premier League champions Liverpool.
But last term's defeat against Bayern Munich made Lionel Messi livid and felt the needed panacea is for him to leave this summer.
He has been linked with a move to Manchester City, but Guardiola and his chiefs will have to pay his release clause for Barcelona to free him.
Sergio Ramos who has played many times against Lionel Messi has now made it clear that he wants the rivalry between him and the Argentine to continue.
"Having said that, for the Spanish game and for Barca and for the rest of us, we'd like him to stay as we always want the best around,'' Ramos explained according to Goal.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Lionel Messi's father Jorge and Barcelona chiefs had one on one meeting on Wednesday evening, September 2, on the future of the six-time Ballon d'Or award winner which ended stalemate.
This means that Jorge and Barcelona chiefs were unable to reach final conclusion on the future of Lionel Messi who has been linked with a move away from Nou Camp.
The Argentina international submitted a transfer request after Barcelona's ouster in the Champions League losing against Bayern Munich.
Barcelona also failed to retain their Spanish La Liga title which was won by their big rivals Real Madrid after the end of the 2019/20 season.
Due to the current situation about Lionel Messi at Barcelona, his father Jorge traveled to Spain to see the club's chiefs who maintained that the player is still part of their plans.
