Messi said goodbye to Barcelona fans on Sunday.

Lionel Messi has been largely silent about his future since he confirmed he wanted to leave FC Barcelona last summer. He is thought to have changed his mind, but the club’s announcement on Thursday proved he will not be able to stay. The player will be able to answer some questions about self-cleaning and his departure by saying goodbye to fans during a press conference on Sunday at 12:00 CEST.

FC Barcelona website Confirmed that his former captain will face members of the media in just a few hours. It will be a rare opportunity for fans to hear the details of what happened directly from the horse’s mouth so they could talk.

It was previously thought that Messi had already agreed to an extension, but the club was unable to balance its books in time to register a new deal. The club had asked La Liga Santander to reconsider, but the league was not interested in changing the rules of the Catalan giants at the expense of other clubs.

Those who are watching the market can clearly see that Barcelona’s desire to reduce its low-income transfer fees means that it has not been able to reduce its wage bill to accommodate Messi. Happened

Another interesting claim is that the club asked Messi to accept a 70% pay cut, which is much higher than the previous 50% contract.
