London: Argentina striker Lionel Messi will leave Barcelona despite both parties reached an agreement over a new contract.

“Despite FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi having reached an agreement and the clear intention of both parties to sign new contract today, this cannot happen because of financial and structural obstacles (Spanish La Liga regulations),” Barca said in a statement.

“As a result of this situation, Messi shall not be staying on at FC Barcelona. Both parties deeply regret that  the wishes of the player and the club will ultimately not be fulfilled.

FC Barcelona wholeheartedly expresses its gratitude to the player for his contribution to the aggrandisement of the club and wishes him all the very best for the future in his personal and professional life.
