Argentine and world star Lionel Messi part ways with Barcelona, the Spanish monsters have confirmed. While both player and club had consented to a five-year contract extension, La Liga's salary cap rules mean that notwithstanding the parties agreement, the new contract cannot be signed under league rules.

Messi's old contract expired in June 2021. 


"Despite FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi having reached an agreement and the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today, this cannot happen because of financial and structural obstacles (Spanish Liga regulations)," Barcelona said in a statement. 


"As a result of this situation, Messi shall not be staying on at FC Barcelona. Both parties deeply regret that the wishes of the player and the club will ultimately not be fulfilled.


"FC Barcelona wholeheartedly expresses its gratitude to the player for his contribution to the aggrandizement of the club and wishes him all the very best for the future in his personal and professional life."


Paris Saint-Germain has made direct communication to Messi's camp, according to Fabrizio Romano.


Qatar team Al-Sadd has offered Messi $1 Billion to sign in the club for 3 years.
