In July2017, Barcelona and Messi announced a contract extension that would keep him with the team till June 30 2021 which is reportedly worth $645000 a week. Messi and his father turned agent Jorgi Messi believed that a clause in his contract could allow him to leave at the end of the last season but Barca stated the option expired on June 10.

And this is why I am going to continue in the club because the president told me that the only way to leave was to pay 700 million euro release clause’’.

The Argentinean who joined the club as a boy has been with it since year 2000 and helped it win ten league titles and four Champion League trophies; he requested to leave the club following Barcelona’s humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in his last game ‘It was a very difficult year, I suffered a lot in training, in games and in dressing rooms’. His lawyer sent Barca a fax on August 25 stating his intention to depart but Messi said he made his feelings clear to Bartomeu long before he stated in the interview that ‘’I told the club, especially the president that I wanted to go, I believed the club needed more young people, it wasn’t because of Champions Leagues results against Bayern, I had been thinking about it for a long time’’.
