Messi thinks the season finished in August, so he can use the clause that frees him from the club before the end of the month. FCB would mention that the contract talks about end of June for Messi to use the clause, so it has expired— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) August 25, 2020
This however can be fought in court because the season ends in August so allegedly Messi could leave the club whenever he wants, that's why both parties want to negotiate.
