The day Barcelona fans have prayed not to come is here and the fans are surely not happy over it. Many of Messi fans have even shown their disapproval to the new development of the decisions made by the club over Messi’s exit from Barcelona.
Barcelona announced that the club will not be able to keep Messi at the Campo Nou, with the Argentine set to leave after joining the Catalan side at 13 years old.
“Despite having reached an agreement between FC Barcelona and Leo Messi, with the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract, it can’t be formalised due to economic and structural obstacles,” the statement read.
“I’d like him to come to Italy one day,” Cristiano Ronaldo said during the 2020/21 season. “I hope he accepts the challenge of leaving his comfort zone.
“But if he’s happy at Barcelona, then of course I respect that.”
Now, Messi appears to be taking Cristiano up on his challenge. Although he’s more likely to join Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain than to move to Italy, Messi will be a long way from his comfort zone of the Camp Nou next season.
Wherever he goes, he is sure to give his new supporters a lot to celebrate in 2021/22 and beyond.
