As the speculations on the future of Lionel Messi continues to make headlines, some members of the Barcelona board are not actually against him leaving the club, ESPN reports.
While some of them at the board are hoping to persuade the 32-year-old to stay, others would not fight against Messi being sold under the right circumstances.
It is believed that Messi have met the new manager, Ronald Koeman within the week and admitted he sees himself more out than in at Camp Nou.
Bu on the side of Koeman, he is very keen to keep the player and build his team around him, just like the previous coaches have done.
However, the Barcelona captain is considering his future at the club, due to a series of events in the last year, including bust-ups with former sporting director, Eric Abidal.
To the surprise of many interested followers of the club, the Champions League exits against Roma and Liverpool have been followed by a first trophyless season since 2007/2008, which was rounded up with the shameful 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.
