Barcelona skipper, Lionel Messi will be leaving the club as La Liga regulations blocked the renewal of the Argentine's contract after the expiration of his previous one on June 30th.

Despite FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi having reached an agreement, and the intention of both parties to sign a new contract on Thursday, this didn't happen because of financial and structural obstacles (Spanish Liga regulations).

As a result of this situation, Messi will not be staying on at FC Barcelona. Barcelona said they deeply regret that its wishes and that of the player will ultimately not be fulfilled.

"FC Barcelona wholeheartedly expresses its gratitude to the player for his contribution to the aggrandisement of the club and wishes him all the very best for the future in his personal and professional life," the club adds.
