FC Barcelona is going through a new process that started with the arrival of head coach Ronald Koeman. One of his firsts decisions was to clear up the team, so he told Luis Suárez, Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic that they were not going to be considered, pushing them out.
Lionel Messi also tried to leave, but the club didn't make the things easy for the Argentinian player, who finally decided to stay as the only solution was to start a trial with the club, something that he didn't want.
After all this complicated situation, Messi and Gerard Piqué relationship suffered a breakdown. Spanish press reports that La Pulga was expecting some kind of gesture from the other leader of the locker room of the club, when he pushed to leave. Instead, Piqué maintain his silence, something that he repeated when Luis Suárez left the club.
Those gestures were not well seen by Messi and his friendship with the Spanish defender finally ended up after the transfer window that will be always be remembered as the one in which Leo tried to left his life-club but couldn't.
