What’s the story?

On Thursday, the Catalan giants revealed that Messi would be leaving the club he served for some 21 years, with the news being hard to fathom for the die-hard Barca faithful.

While there were reports of Messi potentially staying with Barcelona prior to Thursday, it came about that the decision was due to financial issues and it was unviable for a new deal to be concluded.


Free Agent Messi

Messi was without a contract since June and given the latest developments that he will be able to sign elsewhere as a free agent.

Social media was left a buzz following the news, no more so than South African supporters online. A number of photoshopped images of Messi wearing Chiefs and Pirates kits made their rounds on Twitter and Instagram, as fans took the banter route amid the drama.

Messi To PSG?

Now though, it remains to be seen what the next step will be in the life of who many deem to be the greatest footballer of all time. Fresh reports in the media suggest that he could well join Paris Saint-Germain, with a potential reunion with Neymar being an attractive prospect, along with the club’s burning desire to dominate Europe in the UEFA Champions League.
