BARCELONA: Lionel Messi ended intense speculation about his future on Friday by saying he will remain with Barcelona for another year – but only because he did not want to enter a court battle with the club about his contract.
The Argentine six-time world player of the year had told the club last month that he wanted to leave, insisting a clause in his contract allowed him to do so on a free transfer.
Barcelona, backed by La Liga, have insisted that a €700 million ($824 million) release clause would have to be paid.
