Messi said in his exclusive with Goal, that "he felt deceived by Bartomeu" following his failed summer move.

The forward agreed to stay at the club but resentment against Bartomeu has been growing in the past year due to worsening finances and the team's decline on the pitch, which saw them lift no major silverware last season.
