But Barcelona President Maria Bartomeu brought up a strange verse on Friday that the club has no intentions of keeping the Argentine if the player himself choose to leave and that the club receiving the Barcelona star could get the services of the talented playmaker for nothing more than a cent, this came up as a surprise but the Barcelona President stated that it won’t be the first time the club will be involved in this kind of risky deal, he stated that both Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Carles Puyol has undergone this kind of deal at their end of their Barcelona career.
The President said last Friday, “Messi signed until 2021. It was agreed that at the end of the penultimate season he is at liberty to leave for free,” the Blaugrana president told Barca TV.
“We couldn’t give Messi a different clause, but I repeat, I am in no doubt he will stay for many years.”
