Barcelona Fans Protest at Messi News
News that Messi could be about to wave goodbye to Barcelona has upset supporters who have made their feelings clear by protesting outside the Camp Nou and calling for president Josep Maria Bartomeu to resign.
Meanwhile, former Barcelona president Joan Gaspart has said that Messi can not leave for free this year. He told Radio Marca that the Argentina international will have to see out his contract that still has a year left to run.
“He cannot leave. He will have to leave in 2021. I have seen the contract and it is very clear. The clause ended in June and there is no going back. I prefer him to leave next year for zero than to go now for less than 700m euros.
“The club is in charge here, not the player. The club paid the players. And this is not a matter of money, there is a signed contract and that’s it.”
Messi has a release clause in his contract that is set at €700 million.
Where Next for Messi and Suarez?
Speculation is rife over where Messi and Suarez may play their football next season if they both depart the Camp Nou.
According to Sam Lee and David Ornstein at The Athletic, Messi has already spoken to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola about a move, and the Premier League club are “ready to sign” the forward on a free transfer.
Inter, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Miami, and Messi’s former club Newell’s Old Boys are also possible options, according to Mundo Deportivo’s Edu Polo.
Suarez has also been linked with a move to Inter Miami and has already spoken to the MLS side about a possible transfer, according to Miguel Delaney at The Independent. The striker would prefer to stay in Europe but could be tempted by a new challenge.
