Barcelona star player, Messi is now free to negotiate with clubs for a move out of Camp Nou.
The Argentine’s contract at Barcelona expires in the summer and it looks increasingly likely he will walk away from the Camp Nou.
And now, as of today, he is free to negotiate a contract with any club outside of Spain.
While he can negotiate with his potential next club, it seems Messi will wait until the end of the season to make his big decision.
“Nothing will be crystal clear before the end of the year. I’ll wait until the season is over,” he told Spanish TV station La Sexta recently.
“What matters now is thinking about the team, finishing the year well and not being distracted by other things.
“I don’t know what will happen. I’m focused on what we have here and battling for whatever we can.
“I’m not thinking about how the year will end. As of today, it wouldn’t be wise for me to say what I’m going to do because I don’t know.”
