Lionel Messi Is 'Alone' At Barcelona After Making His Teammates Feel 'Undervalued'

Lionel Messi's summer transfer saga has reportedly left his Barcelona teammates feeling 'undervalued' while the Argentine is 'alone' in the dressing room.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner was set to leave the Camp Nou this summer after a near two-decade relationship with the club.

He was prevented from doing so thanks to a €700 million release clause, but he delivered a scathing interview in September slamming the club's recruitment policy.

Mundo Deportivo claim it has upset members of the Blaugrana squad while Messi himself is feeling isolated.

Close friend Luis Suarez left Barcelona for Atletico Madrid in September and Messi was vocal about the exit.

But the report claims Messi is still dedicated to the club and will remain so while under contract.

It shows Messi looking rather lonely with a coach putting an arm around him during the session.

One Twitter user wrote: "He is clearly hurt. No one to support him within the club, on the field or off the field."

A second tweeted: "He's exhausted mentally, went through so many things that I don't know how can he still keep up. It 100% has a major effect on his form."

A third added: "This is really heartbreaking. He feels lonely and abandoned in a place he called home his entire life."

Barcelona return to La Liga action on Sunday against Osasuna after losing to Juventus 3-0 in the Champions League in midweek.

It was the first time Messi had played bitter rival Cristiano Ronaldo since he joined the Italian giants from Real Madrid.

'CR7' scored two from the penalty spot and even managed to tackle his rival.

"It's always beautiful to play against him," Ronaldo told Movistar via ESPN. "Obviously people will talk about our rivalry when we meet, but for me it's just a great privilege.

"Messi is the same as ever [on the pitch]. Barcelona are in a difficult moment, but they are still Barca. I am sure they will come out of it. All teams have bad runs, but Barcelona are a very good team."

Do you think Lionel Messi will stay at Barcelona next summer?
