Leo Messi has communicated to Barcelona you want to go now. This very summer. The forward, as has been confirmed The Newspaper of Catalnuya after information from TYC Sports has sent a burofax to the azulgrana club to leave the Camp Nou after 20 years. The war between Messi and Barça, with unforeseeable consequences. Leo accepts the clause and the club has responded to him in the same way, indicating that it wants him to continue and finish his sports career at the Camp Nou.
He wants to leave for free, tired as he is of the attitude that the board of Bartomeu. Italy appears as the first destination for the Argentine star since the Inter de Milan, with the taxation so favorable for footballers, he has been working on their recruitment for some time. But Barça is unwilling arguing that his contract ends in 2021 and he has a buyout clause of 700 million of euros.
The document sent by the star has caused “perplexity” in the Camp Nou offices, who did not expect such an abrupt movement from the star, ready to leave the Camp Nou as soon as possible. If he manages to go out for free, more stages would be opened for him because clubs like Manchester City or Paris SG himself they would be ready to welcome you with open arms.
Has gotten tired Messi. And he has decided to leave Barça under a clause that exists in his contract to execute the club’s departure. A clause that it had already expired on June 10, according to the directive. It could now enter a fierce legal battle between the star and the club, which sees how the Koeman project, after a blank year, would start without Messi.
You want to execute your clause, willing to leave, something you did not do twice. He thought about leaving in 2013, but then Tito convinced him. He thought about going to Guardiola’s City in 2016, but, finally, he stayed. Now, instead, as he told Koeman in their meeting, he was more outside than inside. And he already looks out.
The star understands, instead, that the season has just ended so the clause remained in full force. This is how the fight between the board of directors and Messi begins, although the board maintains that the contract remains in force, leaving that clause worthless.
The ‘trigger Suárez’
Hence, Messi has resorted to a burofax to officially expose his plans, something that Barça already knows, which, for now, has not issued any statement. The dismissal of Luis Suárez, which was communicated to him by phone by Ronald Koeman, has been the latest argument for the disagreement between the club and the star.
Respect and admiration, Leo. All my support, friend.

Has seen Messi ignored his best friend of the squad and 24 hours later he sent the burofax to leave Barça, the club he arrived at when he was 13 years old. He hadn’t worn any other T-shirt in his professional career and now he has a huge tug of war with the board. He does not want to return to the Camp Nou holding on to the fact that if the Uruguayan does not follow, neither will he.

With this measure, Jorge Messi, father and agent of the forward, must now find a contractual outlet, waiting to benefit from that clause. But Barça, through various sources consulted by this newspaper, maintains that it has no value. Puyol, the former Barça captain, asked for “respect and admiration” for his friend Messi, while Arturo Vidal launched a much more bellicose message: “When you corner a tiger, he doesn’t give up, he fights.”
