Barca confirm Messi’s request to leave

Barcelona have, according to RAC1, confirmed they received a message from Lionel Messi, where the Argentine asked to be able to terminate his contract through a unilateral clause.

La Pulce had a clause in his deal with the Blaugrana allowing him to terminate their agreement at no cost after every season, but the report claims the clause expired on June 10.

RAC1 says the Argentine’s request has been placed in the hands of Barcelona’s lawyers, but that Messi has made his mind up. His future is elsewhere.
