In its latest report about Messi’s desire to leave, the British newspaper Daily Star exploded a resounding surprise, publishing a report in which it confirmed that the president of the Barcelona Club, Josep Bartomio, is thinking of allowing the Argentine star, Lionel Messi, to leave the club.
According to the newspaper, quoting from the BBC Sport, the president of the Barcelona Club is thinking of meeting Messi’s desire to leave the team.
However, the report stressed that such a move by the President of Barcelona (allowing Messi to leave) was very difficult, especially since Bartomio was not brave enough to make such decisions. Media reports had revealed earlier that Messi had asked the Barcelona administration to allow him to leave the team, before other reports confirmed on Thursday that he told the new Barcelona coach, Ronald Coman, during their meeting, his decision to leave this summer and not be part of his plan for the future.
The Spanish radio “1-RAC1” indicated that Messi was clear in his decision, and stressed that even the possibility of staying in Barcelona for an additional season is very difficult, and that he sees himself outside the walls of Camp No. Messi, 33, has a contract with Barcelona until 2021. His market value is currently estimated at 112 million euros, but the penalty requirement for his contract is 700 million euros.
If his contract with Barcelona is not renewed, and he does not leave this summer, Messi will be able to leave the Catalan team next summer for free.
