Barcelona dressing room is reportedly in disarray with some of their players feeling they are undervalued.

This is because of Lionel Messi's transfer saga which has not been totally put away as the Argentine is tipped to leave Camp Nou at the end of his contract next year.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner handed the Blaugrana his transfer request in the summer but his heavy release clause stopped the move from happening.

SunSport reports that Messi claims he was all alone while criticising the board and this did not sit down well with his teammates who appear to be angry with their captain.

The publication quoting Mundo Deportivo reveals that some of his colleagues seem upset while implying he would have preferred they were not signed by the club.

Since deciding to stay back at the Nou Camp, he has not been able to help them improve their stance on the table.

They currently occupy ninth position with 14 points from 10 games - 12 points behind Atletico Madrid who are table-toppers at the moment.

Barcelona's invincibility in the Champions League so far this campaign ended after losing 3-0 to Juventus at Camp Nou.

Messi has not been himself this campaign after just seven goals in 14 appearances across competitions.
