Messi will not be renewing his contract with Barcelona FC and fans are going wild especially on social media.
The Catalan giant announced on Thursday, August 5, 2021, that the new deal with the Argentine star fell apart. –
“Despite FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi having reached an agreement and the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today, this cannot happen because of financial and structural obstacles (Spanish Liga regulations).
“As a result of this situation, Messi shall not be staying on at FC Barcelona. Both parties deeply regret that the wishes of the player and the club will ultimately not be fulfilled.”
This announcement has stirred up reactions from football fans across the globe, Nigerians who are Messi Twitter followers and non-followers have taken to social media to express their shock and denial while some mock the Argentine for wanting more money after draining the club.
We sympathize with all Barcelona fans who are yet to accept this news as real. Our thoughts are with Olamide, CEO of YBNL who grew up in Bariga, Lagos, Nathaniel Bassey, singer and Lagos pastor, Zlatan Ibile who are all Barcelona fans.
