Lionel’s Messi’s father, Jorge, has admitted that there was a clause in the player’s contract that would allow him to leave Barcelona.
The clause is that they were not in a competitive league, Messi could leave. This came following claims that he wanted it added due to concern over Catalan independence.
Spanish newspaper El Mundo, claimed on Thursday that a clause existed that would allow the player to leave if Catalonia did separate from Spain.
Jorge Messi told Argentine radio that, “All that has been said is not true.”
“There is an agreement that Lionel will remain at the club as long as they are playing in a top league.”
“If Catalonia gets independence then Lionel would remain as long as they were in a competitive league.”
