Barcelona and Lionel Messi did not reach an agreement to renew their contract, so the footballer will leave the club for his entire life.

“Both parties regret that in the end it was impossible to fulfill the wishes of both the player and the club,” the Spanish team said in a statement.

The Catalan club reported that the agreement with its captain and figure “cannot be formalized due to economic and structural obstacles (Spanish LaLiga regulations) “.

The first to react was the Catalan sports press. Mundo Deportivo published “Barça announces its break with Messi”, while Sport titled “Messi does not renew with Barça!”.
