Its’s Time to Say Goodbye to Barcelona – Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi has reportedly told Barcelona he wants to leave the club this summer following discussions with their new manager Ronald Koeman.
The club confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Argentine sent a document expressing his desire to leave.
Messi, 33, has spent his entire professional career with Barcelona, scoring over 600 goals and winning ten league titles and four Champions Leagues.
Fox Sports journalist Cholo Sottile tweeted on Tuesday afternoon: “Confirmed: Messi has communicated to Barcelona that he will leave.”
And TyC Sports added: “Breaking! Messi has told Barcelona he is ready to leave. He will activate a clause in his contract that will allow him to move on this summer.”
The defeat capped a difficult season for Barcelona – the first without a trophy since 2007-08 – and ignited one of its worst crises ever.
If Messi does indeed leave all eyes will turn to his next possible destination.
