Hello everyone, and welcome to football.london‘s live coverage of Lionel Messi’s press conference.
It has certainly been a busy few days for the Argentine superstar, with Barcelona having released a statement revealing that he was not set to continue with the club.
Messi and Barcelona have been in dispute for weeks over a new deal, with his previous contract at the Camp Nou expiring at the back end of the 2020/21 season. An agreement has failed to be reached and the six-time Ballon d’Or winner now looks highly likely to be donning a different shirt next season.
It is not the first time that he has been linked with a move away, however, having also made a very public decree last summer over being unhappy with the way the Catalan giants were being run.
That has taken one step closer to reality, with Messi being linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.
Make sure you keep the blog open throughout the morning to find out the latest on his future.
