It is not another day in the history of FC Barcelona: this Thursday, August 5, the Catalan club announced that Lionel Messi will not continue in its ranks after 20 years at the institution.
In this way, the Blaugranas say goodbye to the best footballer in all their history.
But if the Catalans fans are sad, the same feeling would be invading Messi himself.
His departure from Barcelona occurs when nobody expected it, not even Lionel.
That is why from Spain they say that the Rosario "is in shock" due to the fatal outcome of the negotiations that took place between the club, the League and the Messi in recent weeks.
This is how the
media tells it
, realizing "an unexpected turn" and with Messi "assimilating everything that happened".
According to reports from Barcelona, the official statement issued by the club (a text that will enter the history of Spanish football) was written in conjunction with the footballer, and it would be analyzing how Messi will say goodbye to the culé fans.
But as they say, this is not the time to make decisions because Messi is "digesting" the end of his stage as a Barcelona player.
Leaving the club means leaving the city, where he lives with his family, his wife Antonela Roccuzzo and their three children: the future would imply a life change for everyone.

"Messi is really affected," says Mundo Deportivo.
The return from his vacations to the United States and Ibiza showed him expectantly to sign his new contract with Barcelona, of which figures and deadlines were already known, with his activity until 2024.
This Thursday, Messi expected to be called to confirm that everything was done but the communication ended up giving him the worst alternative: "From the club they have called him to inform him that he cannot register due to LaLiga restrictions," says the Spanish media .
