Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has told the club to terminate his contract, so he can leave as a free agent, Marca reports.

Messi is understood to have told the Catalans, to activate a clause in his contract, which allows him to leave the club at the end of the season.

However, both parties have disagreed over when the season actually finished.

Barca feel the clause could only be activated by the end of June, while Messi feels the campaign ends in August.

According to Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague, this is likely to result in a standoff and Messi refusing to undergo preseason tests or training.

“He has no intention to do the preseason tests or start the training sessions with Ronald Koeman. He had told the coach already that he saw himself ‘closer to leave than to stay,” Balague tweeted


  1. Lionel Messi has done well for Barcelona. So so well if I may say. If he wants to leave, I think he should leave peacefully. They don’t have to quarrel over it.
    I wish him success in his future endeavors
    He is a nice player that entertained us so well
    Goodluck Lionel Messi

  2. Chaiiiiiiiiiiii Messi Leaving Barcelona no one saw that coming,I guess the defeat they suffered from Bayern Munich made things worst for them,I don’t know how Barcelona will survive without messi.
    I hope he stays a little longer but I wish him all the best

  3. He should leave the club he has tried for them,he may do better in some other club before his retirement in his career .

  4. I think they should respect his decision and allow him to leave the club by terminating his contract. He has tried for them.

  5. Though, Messi is one of the greatest ever in the history of football. He has done a lot for Barca even he is one of the legend that they will surely remember always, then taking him to court on the issue of contract, if he decides to leave they should respect his and remember all what he has done for them. I wish him best of luck.
