Lionel Messi tells Barcelona he wants to leave the club

After dozens of titles, hundreds of goals and countless records, Lionel Messi’s spectacular career at Barcelona could be coming to an abrupt end. 

Messi told Barcelona on Tuesday that he wants to leave after nearly two decades at the club, having grown unhappy after a trophy-less season ended with a humiliating loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Barcelona confirmed to 'The Associated Press' that Messi sent the club a document expressing his desire to leave.

But the club hinted that a legal battle could be coming and said it won’t automatically grant the Argentina great his wishes. Asianet Online
