In a bizarre twist of events, FC Barcelona has announced that Lionel Messi will no longer continue with the club. This is coming just few hours after La Liga secured a $3billion+ deal to help the league’s financial situation.
While most fans were delighted to hear the news, apparently it didn’t look like one to Joan Laporta and his board. This is because the deal will mortgage FC Barcelona and Real Madrid to 40years in La Liga for some percentages of the overall deal.
While many football enthusiasts saw the deal as the much needed financial relief to help Barca register players like Aguero, Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay, Emerson and Lionel Messi, economically it is a short term relief with a long term sinkhole.
One hour after making the announcement, Barca also uploaded a video of Lionel Messi’s greatest moments with the club. They thanked him. More details to follow later.
