The six-time Ballon d’Or winner has stunned the football world by seeking a move away from Camp Nou and will seek to shed some light on that call
Lionel Messi is planning on breaking his silence and explaining the reasons behind his decision to leave Barcelona.
No date has been set for that revelation, but Goal has learned that the Argentine’s intention is to give his version of events in the coming days, with there a desire on his part to send a message to the fans that remain fiercely loyal to him.
On Tuesday, Messi’s lawyers sent a fax to the legal services of Barcelona announcing the decision to leave the club
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner now intends to explain why he feels the need to walk away from what has been his home for the last 20 years.
Indeed, the Argentine has previously suggested all is not well at Camp Nou as he aired his grievances during the 2019-20 campaign.
Early on in the season, as the Blaugrana stumbled their way out of the blocks, he conceded that things were not going well and collective improvement was required.
He then expressed his disappointment at the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde in January, with a two-time La Liga title-winning coach shown the door at Camp Nou.
Messi has also questioned whether the Barca board, headed up by under-fire president Josep Maria Bartomeu, have done all they can to bring Neymar back to the club from Paris Saint-Germain
