Barcelona legend Lionel Messi has confirmed during an interview with Goal that he is set to stay at the Nou Camp.
“I thought and was sure that I was free to leave, the president always said that at the end of the season I could decide if I stayed or not,” Messi told Goal.
“Now they cling to the fact that I did not say it before June 10, when it turns out that on June 10 we were competing for La Liga in the middle of this awful coronavirus and this disease altered all the season.
“And this is the reason why I am going to continue in the club. Now I am going to continue in the club because the president told me that the only way to leave was to pay the €700 million (£624m) clause, and that this is impossible.”
It’s been an intense saga, but now, the Argentine will have to come to terms with the fact that he will be remaining with the Spanish giants for another year.
