In a shock announcement, Barcelona has announced that Lionel Messi won’t sign a new contract and will leave the club.

He has been a Barcelona player for most of his life – 21 years altogether.

He signed his first contract for the club in 2000 when he was 13 but his first, first team contract was in 2005 when he was 18.

Messi left Barcelona because of new La Liga finance rules. Both Messi and Barcelona agreed to a new deal, but that new deal wasn’t allowed by La Liga.

Messi agreed to have 50% pay reduction to keep himself at his boyhood club, but this didn’t drop Barcelona’s debt levels to a satisfactory level.
