The Argentine striker has played for the club since 2003.
Lionel Messi is considered the top scorer in the history of the Spanish Championship, Barcelona and Argentina. The athlete is a six-time Ballon d’Or winner. At the age of 13, he and his family moved to Spain to train with the Barcelona youth team. He was included in the main team four years later.
Messi warned about his departure last summer. Experts said that the reason is the athlete’s dissatisfaction with the policy of the club president, Josep Bartomeu, as well as the work of head coach Ronald Koeman.
