(AP) Barcelona will choose a new coach in the coming days, and it may have a new president next year.
The club is also promising “wide-ranging” and “profound” structural changes after one of its most humiliating defeats ever — the 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals of the Champions League on Friday.
The one big question that remains is whether it will be able to keep Lionel Messi.
The team’s biggest star for more than a decade has a contract with Barcelona until 2021, but he hasn’t been hiding his dissatisfaction with the club.
Messi has been more outspoken than ever this season, talking about the team’s problems and pointing to poor decisions by club directors. Although he has never really hinted about leaving, his recent actions have raised doubts about his future.
