It has been reported that Lionel Messi has told Barcelona that he wants to leave the club immediately – and on a free transfer.
Messi believes that a clause in his contract means he can walk away for no fee. Barcelona, however, insist that he is still bound by a €700m (£629m) buy-out clause.
Barcelona believe the deadline for that clause to be applied expired at the end of May. However, given the exceptional nature of this season, which extended into the summer due to Covid-19 and did not formally end until the Champions League final last Sunday, Messi is set to argue that the deadline should be set on 31 August.
