Hard time as Lionel Messi’s fax to exit Barcelona club leaked

Lionel Messi handed in a transfer request for Barcelona to terminate his contract and the purported fax message has circulated on social media.

The club confirmed that the 33-year-old star ordered the Catalan club to terminate his existing contract with immediate effect citing a clause in the deal.

Messi asked for the club’s co-operation as he prepares to leave the club, but Barcelona are ready to fight it out, adding that the player’s clause had expired on June 10.

In an image shared by an Instagram account Barca Theory, a purported Lionel Messi fax which he sent to the club was shown.

It has been translated to mean: “By means of this letter, I, Lionel Andres Messi Cuccittini, with a white ID [blank], request that the employment benefit contract that I currently occupy in your distinguished club be terminated, based on clause number 24 that allows me to have this power.”
