The impossible has happened! One of the longest romances in the history of football has come to an end. One of the most valuable sports teams in the world, FC Barcelona has finally announced through a tweet that Argentine footballer Lionel Messi will be leaving FC Barcelona after a record 18-year long relationship with the club and this is official now!

Regarded as the greatest football player of all-time, Lionel Messi has been playing in La Liga club FC Barcelona since the beginning of his career. He’s won six Ballon D’or awards, six European Golden Shoes all at the club. 

He made his debut with the club at the age of 13. And went on to win a record-breaking 34 trophies which includes 10 La Liga titles, seven Copa Del Rey trophies and four UEFA Champions League with the club. He also has 750 senior career goals to his name for club and country. He also holds the record for the most number of goals scored in the history of La Liga, 474 goals. He also holds the record for most goals scored by a player for a single club in the history of sport.

All these records to his and FC Barcelona’s name and still Messi is leaving. The sudden departure of Messi and the end of an era has shaken the whole football world. The club stated that despite both the parties having reached an agreement, the deal could not be signed due to ‘financial obstacles’. The La Liga Financial Fair Play (FPP) Regulations prevented La Liga to sign Messi for another contract and this ended Messi’s time with Barcelona. 

Now, it is official that Messi is a free agent. Speculations of him joining various clubs have already begun. Public believes that Messi will be signed by French football club Paris Saint-Germain FC and join his old friend and colleague Neymar. All of these are speculations but what is confirmed is that Messi will no longer be seen wearing that Barca kit ever again.
