Lionel Messi allows Barcelona split clause to expire

Lionel Messi is staying with Barcelona next season.

AS says Messi hasn't activated the get-out clause in his Barcelona contract that would have allowed the Argentine to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The deadline by which he had to inform the club of his summer departure has now passed.
The 32-year-old had until Sunday 31 May to tell the club of his intention to leave, but at no point has it been in his plans to move on.

Indeed, the expectation within the club is that his decision not to trigger the clause will be a precursor to a renewed contract tying him to the Blaugrana until the end of his career.
