The Latest Update On The Exit Of Lionel Messi From Barcelona That The Fans Are Talking About
A story now confirms that Lionel Messi has left some of his belongings back at the Nou Camp. It was stated that the Argentine talisman has forgotten some awards in the Barcelona dressing room. This was after his sudden exit from the Spanish side, which saw him leave the country within 24hrs of the announcement that the club could not continue to have him within their books.
The main reason for his exit was the financial situation of the Catalan giants. They are unable to afford his wages anymore and needed to offload him. It would help them resolve the issues that they are having at present, where Barcelona is forced to sell quite a few of their first-team players and bring in cheaper replacements.
A lot of their other top players also had to take major pay cuts to accommodate some of the newcomers. This includes the likes of Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay. All three players have been slowly registered and fit into the squad.
This was only possible after the pay cuts and the exit of Lionel Messi. With that being said, his contributions with goals and assists and the other creative play will be sorely missed at the club. The player will be wearing a No. 30 jersey in the French capital. He will be paid €70M over two years, with his jersey sales hitting €156M over 24 hours.
