Barcelona has revealed that Lionel Messi will leave the club due to ‘financial and structural difficulties.’
After his original contract with Barcelona expired this summer, Messi became a free agent, although he was anticipated to re-sign with the club following promising initial conversations between all parties.
However, due to LaLiga’s financial constraints, Barcelona has declared that Messi will not be signing a new deal. As a result of the news of Messi’s departure, fans have rushed to Twitter to vent their thoughts.
‘Real Madrid and Barcelona have f***ed up so badly in the last 5 years, it’s incredible,’ said one critic of the decision. At the top of both teams and LaLiga, there is terrible leadership. Without Messi and Ronaldo, you’ll have a hard time competing with the Premier League.’
