But he did not appear – indicating his belief that he is no longer under contract at Camp Nou.The 33-year-old six times world player of the year informed the club on Tuesday he wished to leave immediately – and his lawyers say that there is a clause in his four-year contract, signed in 2017, which would have allowed the forward to leave the club for free if he had requested it by June 10.They will argue that that date – which would have been the end of the 2019-2020 season – is now irrelevant after the coronavirus delays that led to the season’s extension and the team playing deep into August.Tags: Camp NouCOVID-19 TestingLionel Messilast_img
