Official: Messi Quits Barcelona

Leo Messi has parted ways with childhood club  and La Liga giants, Barcelona.

Official statement from the club reads;

“Despite having reached an agreement between Barcelona and Leo Messi and with the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today, it will not be possible to formalize due to economic and structural obstacles (Spanish LaLiga regulations).

Faced with this situation, Lionel Messi will not continue to be linked to Barcelona. The two parties deeply regret that the wishes of both the player and the Club cannot finally be fulfilled.

Barça wants to thank with all the heart the player’s contribution to the aggrandizement of the institution and wishes him the best in his personal and professional life”.

Messi parted ways with Barca after lengthy talks of contract extension hit a brick wall. He refused to take a 50% pay cut amidst the club’s financial issues.
