Messi has reportedly told Barcelona that he wants to leave the club this summer.
According to multiple reports, the 33-year-old sent a fax to Barcelona asking the club to allow him to activate a clause in his contract that will allow him to leave on a free transfer this summer, with his deal currently set to expire at the end of next season.
Messi’s decision comes after rumours of his unhappiness with the decisions taken by club’s top hierarchy.
Some reports also indicated that Barcelona’s 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the quarter-final of the 2020 UEFA Champions League also contributed to Messi’s unhappiness at the club, as they were unable to win a title in the 2019/20 season.
Messi’s decision to leave Barcelona has, however, generated a lot of reactions on social media as he is currently among the top trends.
His decision has saddened a lot of Barcelona fans, but fans of other clubs are just excited and have been reacting to the news with hilarious posts on Twitter.
They clearly don’t care about the mental health of the Barca fans… LOL
