Major European Club Pulls Out Of Messi Race

Since the news broke that Lionel Messi wants to leave FC Barcelona, most major clubs across Europe will have considered entering the race to sign him, but one team has confirmed they are not interested.

Newly crowned European champions Bayern Munich are arguably at the peak of their powers right now, but they will not be in a bidding war for one of the world's greatest-ever players.

The Bavarians' CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge addressed the matter, according to Tuttosport, and explained why a move for the Argentine star would not be possible for the Bundesliga giants.

When asked if they could potentially sign Messi, he said, "No, we can't pay a player of that size. It is not part of our policy and philosophy."

The Bayern legend also offered his thoughts on the saga as a whole, adding: "Honestly, hearing that Messi could leave Barcelona makes me a little sad. Leo has written the history of that club and, in my opinion, he should end his career with the Blaugrana.

"There are internal and private aspects there that I don't know about and that is why I will not interfere."

There are still a number of clubs said to be in the running, though, with Manchester City thought to be frontrunners. Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are others that have been credited with an interest in the player.
