❗Messi has informed Barça that he wants to leave. He has asked them to refer to the clause in his contract which allows him to leave for free at the end of each season. [tyc sports]— barcacentre (@barcacentre) August 25, 2020
It’s fascinating to see the implosion at Barcelona that has led to this. Can you imagine how bad it has gotten that Messi will forego everything and leave. Could this be a ploy to make Josep Bartomeau resign, sure, but plenty of respected and accredited reporters are stating this is it. The end of the line and a line has been drawn by Messi.
Now, who will get him?
Manchester City are sure to be favorites with Txiki and Pep. Add in the report that Messi will not even show up for physicals at Barcelona and now we have something real and tangible.
It looks likely he is gone.
We’ll see what happens.
