Kinda, but it's going to be spent on the 2 or 3 players we'll need to replace him with, and they won't have the marketing pull he does so revenues should go down

Yeah, hard to believe he'll follow through tbh.

Is it maybe that he wants to force a Bartomeu resignation with this?

Also, regarding City, do you guys think Pep wants to work with Messi again?

Maybe now we know why Ed Woodward let the BVB deadline on Sancho expire :bow:

Barca will refer to Messis 700M release clause. They could go to court @verobrunati

This clause has been reported fairly consistently in the last few years.

Reading now in Sport.es that Barcelona appeals to the fact that the clause expires by a certain date every season. Now with Covid delays to the season it's up to the lawyers and courts to interpret the contract in whatever way makes sense.

Yeah, no way that Messi's lawyers would've sent that if it was obviously wrong. They clearly think they have a case to make.

IF this is true, I imagine is an issue of: fixed calendar date vs interpreting the date as "end of the season".

Well given that the transfer market lasts all the way until October this year, Messi's lawyers could have a point.

Khaldoon Mubarak said the other day how City will be targeting experienced players rather than those aged from 20-25 like they usually do. He very well could be referring to a Messi signing.

Messi wants to compete and win the CL one last time before he retires. He'll probably join up with Pep at City for one last dance. I'm sure he'll do the business in the PL. If someone like Silva went down as one of the best midfielders ever there and he's a poor man's version without the pace or scoring, I'm sure Messi will be fine in Pep's system.

Another option is PSG if he doesn't want to risk going to the PL. It'll be an easier ride. He'll cruise to league titles while playing in Paris and he'll only have to turn up for the CL. He can join his buddies there too.

Either way, if they go to court against Messi, it will be unbelievably shameful to disrepsect the best player ever and a legend of the club in that way

I can't believe they'll go as far.

Wow... he's forcing a move.  His lawyers told Barca that the "end of the season" moved and his original notice date was meant to coincide post the CL final. He argues that he maintains the right to revoke his contract unilaterally given the CL final just ended. The fax official served as Messi invoking this clause.

This is not going to be pretty.

“Messi’s clause that allows him to leave for free expires on June 10th. It is in writing and therefore there is nothing to discuss.” [espn]



sounds like the date is fixed, not "end of season" but specifically June 10th

Rich footballers buy properties at 'glamorous' cities like Milan, Paris, London etc all the time. Nothing new imo.

Well that's atleast one way of funneling their tax money :coffee:

ESPN pundits aren't lawyers. He can invoke the current circumstances and the intent of the June 10 date. Since Barca weren't eliminated until about 10 days ago, he waited until the end of the season.

It's not cut and dry at all.

The biggest thing is that it's a free transfer. He communicated to Barca that he's revoking his contract!
