#Lionel Messi told Barcelona that he wishes to leave the club

Updated: Oct 2, 2020

Lionel Messihas reportedly told Barcelona that he wishes to leave the club, leaving every team in the world, including Indian football teams racing to get the legendary Argentine footballer in their team.

A world in which Lionel Messi does not play for Barcelonaseems unimaginable, but that could be the reality in the not too distant future.

Messi joined Barcelona at the age of 13. He made the first team debut at 16 and since then, helped them scale unprecedented heights, establishing the Catalan side as the best football club in the world.

A world in which Lionel Messi does not play for Barcelonaseems unimaginable, but that could be the reality in the not too distant future.

Ten days after Barcelona lost 2-8 to Bayern Munich in the quarterfinal of the Champions League, Lionel Messi has reportedly told the Spanish club that he wants to leave.

According to reports in the Spanish media, Messi, whose contract runs out in May 2021, faxed a message to Barcelona on Tuesday night, asking to be released immediately by triggering a rare clause, which will allow making his exit smooth.

What is the clause that Messi has triggered?

In September last year, it emerged that a clause in Messi’s contract allowed him to unilaterally leave the club at the end of each season.

The clause was inserted due to a hefty buyout package, which would make a normal transfer unaffordable for most clubs. However, as per the contract, Messi is liable to inform the club on or before May 31, the date when a football contract generally ends worldwide, as it marks the end of a season

Will Barcelona accept it?

Barcelona, the Associated Press has reported, have confirmed they have received the request from Messi. However, according to Spanish media, the club is likely to examine the legality of Messi’s belated request.

Are there any clubs willing to sign him?

Multiple reports in the Spanish and English press have said that the two Manchester clubs – City and United – have shown interest in signing Messi.

A move to City, who have deep pockets thanks to their Gulf owners, would mean Messi will play under Pep Guardiola, with whom he had some of his best years.

Italian giants Inter Milan, too, are in the fray. Such a move, should it happen, will be similar to the one made by Messi’s arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Real Madrid to join Juventus a couple of seasons ago.

Manchester City is arguably the most logical and one of the more realistic clubs that Messi could sign for next.

Messi could be tempted to reunite with Pep Guardiola, his former coach at Barcelona and the manager who oversaw his meteoric rise to becoming one of the greatest players in the world.
