Official statement from the Catalans side states that:
“Despite having reached an agreement between Barcelona and Leo Messi and with the clear intention of both parties to sign a new contract today, it will not be possible to formalize due to economic, financial and structural situation (Spanish LaLiga regulations).
Faced with this obstacles, Lionel Messi will not continue to be linked to Barcelona. The two parties deeply regret that the wishes of both the player and the Club cannot finally be fulfilled.
Barca extends their felicitation to him, and wishes him success in his personal and career life”
