The Lionel Messi chapter has come to an end at Barcelona. The Argentine is edging closer to finding an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain after leaving the Camp Nou, and details of what went wrong continue to come out. Despite an agreement having been reached between Messi and the clubs for a matter of weeks, and his contract extension seeming all but signed, the Catalan club confirmed on Thursday that he would not be continuing with them in 2021/22.
It has been 136 days since Joan Laporta won the Barcelona presidential election, and it is clear to see that his project is starting to take shape. From the start, he was prepared to wait until the end of the season to get to work, and he has done just that this summer, as he is starting to bring about the enormous change that is required at the Camp Nou.
