Lionel Messi has reportedly made a decision to leave Barcelona immediately. However Barcelona is demanding a 700 million euros release clause on the Argentine.
However, Messi might leave on a free transfer at the end of next season, as the his release clause stands at €700m and there’s a doubt that any club will consider paying such a fee for the 33-year-old.
According to several media reports, Italian club, Inter Milan are attempting to recruit the ace, with a possible reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City also dominating the speculation.
Messi showed no signs of slowing down this season with 31 goals and 26 assists across all competitions, but Barcelona failed to win any major honours after a collapse in the Copa del Rey was followed by the side losing the title race from pole position as well as being kicked out of the UCL.
