Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is leaving Barcelona
There has been speculation for a few days that Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is leaving Barcelona. This time, ending all speculations, Messi himself informed Barcelona that he is no longer in this club. A trusted football news outlet reported the matter quoting TYC Sports. It is said that Messi has informed the Barca authorities via fax about leaving the club.
After all the rumors all day on Tuesday, the rumors of Messi’s departure from Barcelona at night during Bangladesh time have become starker. Spanish media Marca and several Argentine media outlets have also claimed that Messi has sent documents to the club to leave Barcelona.
If this news is true, Barcelona will not get any money in Messi’s transfer fee. Messi’s last contract expires in 2021. However, there was a condition in the contract – Barca will not be able to prevent Messi from leaving the club if he wants to last year. Spanish journalist Guillaume Balag says Messi is reluctant to start pre-season training under Ronald Koeman.
He wants to leave Barca before that. Manchester City has been on the list of clubs interested in Messi for some time. According to ESPN, City is investigating whether it is possible to buy Messi. Manchester United’s name was heard in the list of interested clubs on Tuesday.
Spanish media Raccoon claimed that Barcelona also received faxed documents from Messi. However, Messi had until June 10 to break Barca claim. They are sitting in an emergency meeting to decide what to do next. Messi sat down with Coman on Friday after he became a coach. Neither Messi nor Koman leaked any news. However, at that meeting, Messi told Koman that he was more likely to leave than stay at the club.
Messi joined the main team when he was growing up in the Barcelona academy. He has also been the captain of the club for three years. The 33-year-old Argentine is also the most successful player in the history of Barcelona. In many cases, if Messi leaves Barcelona by the end of 2020, it will be like a bomb blast for the football world.
