Lionel Messi confirms he wants to leave Barcelona

Lionel Messi has communicated to Barcelona that he wants to leave the club and will activate a clause to end unilaterally his contract.

The extraordinary development potentially puts the 33-year-old within reach of a dramatic move to Manchester City and a reunion with Pep Guardiola.

Manchester United, PSG, Inter Milan and Juventus are also showing early interest.

In a dramatic twist, Barcelona have admitted the clause allowing Messi to leave does exist, but that it expired on June 10.

Barcelona have confirmed they received the burofax from Messi, but they ensure that the clause that allows Messi to leave expired on June 10.

Messi has a €700m release clause at the Nou Camp, meaning no club could afford to snare him away if his contract is not torn up.

The superstar also needs to find a club who could afford his wages of £1m-a-week.
