Lionel Messi: It's over, the world champions will leave Barcelona

After the 8:2 champions league quarter-final thrashing by Bayern Munich, Lionel Messi writes Barca a letter to leave the club immediately.

The world champions has said he will leave Barcelona after nearly 20 years with the club.

The club confirmed to the Associated Press on Tuesday that the Argentine had sent her a written letter announcing his intention to leave the club.

The announcement comes 11 days after Munich’s 8-2 thrashing of Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, one of the worst humiliation the player has seen in his career.

Messi, a six-time Ballon d’Or winner, made his debut for Barcelona in 2004, and has won the Champions League four times.
