The era of Lionel Messi at Barcelona ends, announcing that he will not "continue to be linked" to the club

Barcelona confirmed in a statement released on social networks that Lionel Messi will not continue to be “linked to the club”, “despite having reached an agreement and with the intention of signing a new contract, it will not be possible to formalize due to economic and structural obstacles. “.

The continuity of Lionel Messi at Barcelona this Thursday became a “practically impossible” affair after a meeting that was intended to be understood as a courtesy to close the last fringes of the agreement between the two parties led to an absolute break, which some hours later it was confirmed by the club, which credited the end of Messi’s era to the “Spanish LaLiga regulations.

The Argentine star arrived in Barcelona on Wednesday pending the contacts between his advisers and the club’s executives, but now far from accepting the entity’s postulates. The footballer’s father landed late in the morning, while a meeting was already taking place in the offices in which the Barcelona representatives began to understand that the difficulties in closing the deal were becoming unapproachable and early in the afternoon it was broken the matter.

The key observed to explain the unexpected outcome would be found, more than in the economic conditions offered to Messi in his new contract, in the lack of a solid sports project in his opinion, in addition to several points of the contract that he did not understand acceptable.

Despite the fact that in recent weeks a message of optimism was sent from Barcelona, ​​articulated by the speeches of Joan Laporta himself, an obvious coldness was always maintained from the player’s side, stating that there was much “still” to discuss and specify . Waiting for the club to fit Leo’s salary into the necessary salary cut for the staff, he hoped to solve the matter with a final pending meeting of “small fringes” … Which finally turned out to be insurmountable disagreements.

Thus, a wonderful era in football ends not only in Spanish, but also in the world, with the departure of Messi towards a destination that, everything points to, would be PSG.
