Lionel Messi reveals to Barcelona he needs to leave yet faces fight in court over provision




Lionel Messi has disclosed to Barcelona that he needs to leave the club quickly – and on a free exchange. The Argentinian, who as per RAC1 radio had told new administrator Ronald Koeman that he felt “more out than in”, has sent a fax to Barcelona educating them regarding his craving to go.

His camp accepts that a statement in his agreement implies that he can leave for no charge. Barcelona, on the other hand, demand that he is as yet limited by a €700m (£629m) purchase out condition. The stunner dropped on Tuesday evening with the news that Messi had told the club on Tuesday evening.

Barcelona are yet to respond formally however they keep on demanding that he is a piece of Koeman’s arrangements and that in the event that he is to leave, his official cost is €700m. Messi’s agreement lapses the following summer, recommending that they would be compelled to haggle with possible purchasers.

All assessed move esteems are as of Jan. 6, 2020.

More awful, a condition in his agreement permits him to leave for nothing insofar as he imparts that choice. Barcelona accept that the cutoff time for that condition to be applied has terminated: he needed to educate them regarding his choice before the finish of May. In any case, given the remarkable idea of this season, which reached out into the late spring and didn’t officially end until last Sunday’s Champions League last, Messi’s camp are set to contend that the cutoff time ought to be determined to 31 August.

Whatever happens now, the connection between the player and the club is broken destroyed, the emergency extending constantly.

LaLiga: Why David Luiz did not join Real Madrid after leaving Arsenal



Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, was keen to bring David Luiz to the club this summer, but the club never tabled an offer for the player, Globo reports.

Ancelotti is believed to have made contact with Luiz, who he worked together with at Chelsea.

The 34-year-old became a free agent this summer, having seen his contract with Arsenal expire at the end of June.

However, he has now returned to his native Brazil to sign with Flamengo, putting pen to paper on a 15-month contract.

It ended Luiz’s 15-year playing career in Europe.

But things would have been different if Madrid presented an offer for the experienced centre back.

The LaLiga giants allowed captain Sergio Ramos leave this summer, while Raphael Varane signed for Manchester United.

David Alaba arrived at the Bernabeu on a free transfer over the summer, but the La Liga giants are said to be determined to bring another centre-back to the club in 2022.

2022 WORLD CUP Salah Among Absentees as African Qualifying Resumes



Africa’s second round of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup is set to kick off with some notable absentees – Mohamed Salah, among them – after the refusal of British clubs to release players for various matches.

Premier League clubs have led the way in refusing permission for players to head to countries on the British government’s Covid red list, which would require 10 days of quarantine upon their return.

With Egypt one of 17 African countries on the red list, Liverpool superstar Salah will miss this week’s home match against Angola in Cairo but could play in Gabon, which is not on the list, next week.

Quarantine conditions meant he could have been one of several internationals to miss multiple games, said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

“As clubs we cannot do that – not only because we play games in that time, but because without being positive (for coronavirus) they lose 10 days of training,” he said.
