Messi’s father makes final decision on son’s move.

Published

Jorge who is the father and agent of football legend Lionel Messi has reportedly confirmed that his star son will remain at Barcelona until the end of the 2020/21 League season in Europe.

This latest development will be a great one for all Barcelona fans considering how their minds have been troubled when Lionel Messi handed the Catalans a transfer request. Lionel Messi did that after the club’s defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League losing 8-2 which sent them out of the competition. Defeat against Bayern Munich remains Barcelona’s heaviest loss ever in history and it caused trouble at the Camp Nou. Manager Setien was kicked out by Barcelona chiefs who were angry with the result against Bayern Munich and hired Ronald Koeman. However, such action failed to change the decision of Lionel Messi who has been linked with a move to Manchester City. According to the latest report on Goal citing Mediaset, Lionel Messi’s father Jorge has confirmed that meeting with Barcelona chiefs went well.

Asked on whether a six-time Ballon d’Or winner could remain with the Blaugrana until the end of his current contract in 2021, Jorge Messi replied with “yes”. Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Sergio Ramos who is the captain of Spanish champions Real Madrid 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.

United grab victory after Cavani’s brace insipires comback and sinks Saints

Published

Edinson Cavani came off the bench to inspire a stunning Manchester United comeback as they turned around a two-goal deficit to secure a superb victory at Southampton.

 

The 33-year-old Uruguayan striker was a half-time replacement for out-of-sorts Mason Greenwood with Saints two goals up and in control of a fluctuating encounter at St. Mary’s – the veteran turning the tide with a virtuoso display and a brilliant headed double.

 

James Ward-Prowse was United’s tormentor in that first half, setting up Jan Bednarek’s 23rd minute header with a corner before floating a magnificent free-kick beyond David de Gea 10 minutes later.

 

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who watched his side waste a host of chances and also had to replace the injured De Gea with Dean Henderson at the interval, sent on Cavani to perform the rescue act and the deadline-day signing obliged in spectacular style.

 

Cavani was a constant threat, setting up Bruno Fernandes to pull one back just on the hour before showing the old instincts remained fully intact to divert the Portuguese midfield man’s deflected shot past the excellent Southampton keeper Alex McCarthy with a diving header, 16 minutes from time.

 

As the game entered injury time, and with Southampton hanging on desperately for a point, Cavani was the match-winner with a flicked header from Marcus Rashford’s cross to spark wild United celebrations as they recorded eight successive top-flight wins away from home for the first time.
