Lionel Messi told he Lacks Respect and will not be allowed to Leave Barca Easily
Lionel Messi handed in a transfer request to Barcelona to terminate his contract and the purported fax message has gone viral as the request leaked and is now everywhere on social media. The club confirmed that Lionel Messi ordered them to terminate his existing contract with immediate effect citing a clause in the deal.
He asked for the club’s co-operation as he prepares to leave the club, but Barcelona is ready to fight it out, adding that the player’s clause had expired on June 10. An image shared by an Instagram account Barca Theory, a purported Lionel Messi fax which he sent to the club was shown. It has been translated to mean: “By means of this letter, I, Lionel Andres Messi Cuccittini, with a white ID [blank], request that the employment benefit contract that I currently occupy in your distinguished club be terminated, based on clause number 24 that allows me to have this power.”
Barcelona management has however come out to say the play-maker lacks respect and the only condition that will see him leave the club peacefully is if he pays the club £628million to cancel Barcelona contract. Barcelona have been dealt a major problem after Lionel Messi reportedly informed the club he wants to leave this summer.
The Argentine has made up his mind to walk away from the club which he made his home for 15 years after talks with new boss Ronald Koeman. He had one of the most unforgiving seasons of his otherwise glittery career in 2019/2020, in campaign things went worst as Bayern thrashed them 8-2 in the Champions League quarter-final.
