Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday the Argentine sent a document expressing his desire to activate a release clause that would end his contract and allow him to leave for free this summer.
do not agree the clause is still active. It is said to have expired on June 10 – 10 days after the original date of the Champions League final on May 30.
But if he does leave, where will he go? Who can afford him? And what mess will he leave behind at the Nou Camp?
Mundo Deportivo lead with the front page ‘He wants to go’ and say Barca have asked Messi to reconsider his request and finish his career at the Nou Camp.
The paper says Barca consider Messi to be non-transferable, and reports Messi asked Pep Guardiola a few days ago if Manchester City were willing to sign him.
“Goodbye by Burofax” say AS after Messi reportedly sent the documents outlining his desire to leave the club by burofax, the service provided by Spain’s postal service.
