It’s silly season and the rumors are wild

Lionel Messi’s father is back in the news. This time around he made the decision of purchasing a home for reported tax purposes in Milan, Italy.

The only reason this is even worth a post is because it involves covering Messi and the word Milan. Messi’s current contract situation has spawned concerns that the legend is actually thinking about leaving next summer.

The concerns, in my opinion, are legitimate. Messi’s frustration with Barcelona hasn’t ever felt this real, and they should be taking it seriously. In all likelihood, he’s going to stay at Barcelona. If he is to leave, his father buying a house in Milan wouldn’t have been an breadcrumb to his ultimate decision.

Carry on.
