Messi will stay with Barcelona till June 30, 2021 and is likely to leave at the end of contract expiry. ”I wasn't happy and I wanted to leave. I have not been allowed this in any way and I will stay at the club so as not to get into a legal dispute. "There was another way and it was to go to trial. I would never go to court against Barca because it is the club that I love, which gave me everything since I arrived. It is the club of my life, I have made my life here,” Messi had told Goal.com.
