Lionel Messi Responds To La Liga With Official Statement

Lionel Messi Responds To La Liga With Official Statement

Lionel Messi has released an official statement denying that his 700 million release clause still stands.

Earlier this week La Liga sided with Barcelona when they stated Messi would only be able to leave the Blaugrana if his clause is activated.

But in a new statement that has just been published and submitted to La Liga by his father and agent Jorge on Friday afternoon, Messi is maintaining that the clause expired at the end of what was an extended 2019/20 campaign and that he should be allowed to leave for free.
