Lionel Messi will leave Barcelona even if president Bartomeu resigns

Lionel Messi’s decision is final and there is no turning back, according to Onda Cero journalist Alfredo Martinez.

Even if club president Josep Maria Bartomeu resigns from his position, it is believed that the club captain will leave Camp Nou. Several clubs are being linked with a move for the 33-year-old, including Manchester City, Manchester United, PSG and Inter.

The Athletic report that City coach Pep Guardiola spoke to Messi last week to explain the project he would be involved in at the Etihad Stadium.
