Top of the list, however, is the future of club talisman Lionel Messi. The Argentine made public his desire to leave Barcelona last summer and it looks increasingly unlikely he will sign a new contract, meaning the … [Read more...] about Chaos, scandal and anger: Barcelona faces seminal presidential elections
