Multiple sources in Spain are saying Leo Messi is leaving Barcelona this summer.
He would like to activate the release clause to leave Barcelona immediately, FCB also confirmed. Barcelona’s position is still so clear: Messi has a 700 million euros release clause, the “free clause” expired in June this year. The Board reunited to take decisions on next days.
In what seems like a farewell message, Messi’s close friend and former team-mate, Carles Puyol tweeted:
”Respect and admiration Leo. You have all of my support, friend”
Messi’s decision to leave Barcelona has apparently come in following an 8-2 thrash in the Champions League knockout by the Champions Bayern Munich on Sunday.
