This information was released by the president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta. A video with his words was posted on Twitter. According to Laporta, he tried very hard to keep the Messiah in Barcelona, but, alas, he did not succeed.
Earlier, the media reported that Messi's contract with Barcelona, which expired at the end of June, will be extended for five years, while the Argentine agreed to cut wages by half. However, on August 5, the club announced that the contract would not be renewed. Uncertainty remained about where Messi would go.
Nothing is known about the details of the Messiah's new contract with Paris Saint-Germain. Also, while the Messiah himself has not confirmed, but also has not denied the information about his transfer to PSG. He stated that PSG is one of the options for continuing his career.
At a press conference on Messi's departure from Barça and held on August 8, Messiah could not hold back his tears.
With Barcelona, Lionel Messi has won the Champions League four times, the Spanish Cup seven times and the Spanish championship ten times. Messi is the owner of six Golden Balls.
