Messi reportedly made up his mind to leave the club which he made his home for 15 years after conversation with new the boss Ronald Koeman.

However, a reports from tycsports.com indicate that the 33-year old Argentine maestro made his intentions to leave Barca known via a bureaufax message. It is understood that the Barcelona legend is ready to activate a clause that would enable him to terminate his contract with the club.

But the club claims Messi had to stay until June 10 to terminate the contract and that it is in the hands of the legal services at this point.
