Lionel Messi ignores PCR test and insists no longer Barcelona player. He was due to report at the training ground at 10:15 hours this morning.
Lionel Messi has not turned up to his scheduled PCR tests at Barcelona this morning and insists that he is no longer part of the club.
The Argentine had been scheduled to show up at the club’s facilities on Sunday morning along with all the coaching staff and his teammates, but he was not present and his representatives claim he is no longer a Blaugrana player.
The 33-year-old has a clause in his deal allowing him to leave at the end of any season, and whilst it was thought that deadline passed in June, Marca have reported his camp believe that it has been extended in line with the prolonged 2019/20 season.
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and the current board of the Catalan giants will not allow their superstar to leave as a free agent and they will only be prepared to meet with the player to discuss a new contract.
