BARCELONA are said to be “considering Lionel Messi’s future” after the Argentinian striker went 12 minutes without scoring in a recent game. The goal drought is stretching the patience of bosses at the Catalan club, a source revealed to the Splurt. Messi, 25, has only scored 90 goals in 2012, which one senior club official described as “a bit disappointing considering how much he cost us”. “They don’t know why he went so long without scoring,” the source added. “If he doesn’t start hitting the back of the net more regularly he could find himself on his way in January.” Fernando Torres was unavailable for comment.
