How Messi Has Reacted To Barca Exit News

After Barcelona announced Lionel Messi would not be able to sign a new deal at the club, it seems to have now been revealed how the six-time Ballon d'Or winner reacted to the news.

It was confirmed on Thursday evening that the 34-year-old would not be extending his stay at the Blaugrana, despite reports earlier this week suggesting he had agreed a five-year contract. 

According to Barcelona, a new deal for the Argentine is financially unviable, as they said in an official statement.

It has since been claimed by RAC1, who was among the first few publications to state that Messi would not be able to stay at the Catalans, that the 2021 Copa America winner has been deeply affected by the news.

Barca reportedly informed Messi's dad, Jorge, who works as his agent, today that an extension was off the table. 

The forward had been in the club's first-team since the 2004/05 season, making 778 appearances in all competitions and contributing to 977 goals in total.
