A second tweeted:

"He's exhausted mentally, went through so many things that I don't know how can he still keep up. It 100% has a major effect on his form."

Another quipped:

"This is really heartbreaking. He feels lonely and abandoned in a place he called home his entire life."

He said:

“I think (he’ll stay). I see Leo calm in the dressing room and always wanting to train, and I think we’ll enjoy Leo for a long time at Barca. Messi’s place is where he is and where he has to end up is in this huge club, Barca.”
