Messi’s departure: Dropping a bomb across the footballing roster, Barcelona has confirmed that Lionel Messi will not be returning to the club this summer. After an awe-inspiring, record-shattering, God-forging 21 years at the Camp Nou, the Argentine talisman has chosen to bid adieu to Barcelona.
The God in the mortal remains of a man, Lionel Messi’s figures is simply too awe-inspiring to refute. The man built a dynasty at Camp Nou and set it ablaze with an extraordinary brand of football that is only conceived in the wildest thoughts of any other on the face of the planet.
He played 778 games for Barcelona where he went onto score a staggering 672 goals, won 35 trophies and strung 305 assists. The man was phenomenal, unstoppable and a magical creator in the middle.
When Maradona retired from the game, no one would dare think that there can be someone else who could have taken the mantle from him. However, magic does happen, miracles do unfold and Messis are born.
After a 21-year old kinship with Barcelona, things fell out due to financial constraints that according to the club would have hampered the La Liga regulations. Despite concrete reports of Messi’s return to Barcelona even until today evening, things spiraled into chaos when the news of Messi departing exploded.
Being candid, there is very little time left for the transfer window to close and this will mean intense competition from various clubs across the world to own the signature of the football God. Twitter respected this man’s legacy and poured heartfelt admiration for the era that Messi left at Barcelona.
However, owing to the sudden news of Messi’s departure, fans from various clubs across the globe want to onboard the little magician in their ranks. We will like to take you through a few posts that heaped praises on this man’s untouchable legacy and mixed it with humour and respect.
