Days had gone since Messi decided to leave Barcelona. With the Spanish Giants insisting he has to sit out his contract or have his buyout clause activated by any suitor club.
Barcelona had insisted that the €700m clause in Messi’s contract was still active while the Messi’s camp denied there was any truth in that, saying the clause had expired by August.
After much dialogue and meeting with club board, it seems like the Argentine might have to sit out his contract and leave for free at it’s expiry. He won’t be allowed to leave for free if the clause in his contract isn’t activated.
Premier league fans would have loved seeing him move to England this season but it seems they will have to wait for another season.
