Arsenal Message Board
You could have spend a little more time on it, like:
It was a bad kept secret from Barca's inner circles that Messi was very disappointed when club president Rossel broke with Guardiola.
It seems Messi has not gelled well with the new manager and club hierarchy and has appealed to the club to go back to the playing style perfected by Guardiola, something the club has been reluctant to do and the signing of Neymar seems to have been the final straw for Messi, who now seems ready to think about what seemed to be the unthinkable only a few short seasons age, a new club grace with his brilliance.
However Arsenal will have to up their £50 million bid if they want to beat out Bayern, a delegation's of which, including Guardiola where spotted sharing an icetea with the virtuoso this last Thursday, although his manager claimed the encounter was a chance run-in and not planned.
