The FC Barcelona trusts Leo Messi much more of what can seem in a first moment. The maximum Barcelona leaders know that the Argentinian is the key of everything and that his presence is what decants the scales in a lot of parties and a lot of titles. It is therefore by what the one of Rosario is the better footballer paid of the world with some 40 million net euros by year.

But no only by the desorbitado wage that the Barcelona pays him to Messi notices the confidence of the Catalan club. The newspaper El País gives an information on the agreement of the Argentinian that could surprise to many. It seems that the forward has a clause in the same that it allows him leave of the Barça each summer entirely free.

The '10', that is linked to the group barcelonista until June of 2021, has the freedom to go when it want to since it signed his last renewal in 2017. The quoted newspaper bases in sources of the own Barça that literally admitted this. "We assume that it can stop when it want to, to final of each season, like this agree it the two parts", said him to the mates of El País.

It seems that it was a mutual agreement the fact to include this clause and in the Barcelona do not fear that it exert it. The club trusts the one of Rosario and knows that it always has been a loyal person with the team of his life. In the Barça do not have fear that Messi go to exert this clause to leave to another club.

It seems to be that in the last agreements of others illustrate Barcelona like Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta or Carles Puyol, included also a clause resembled the one of Leo. The club does it with one accord with some footballers that have won the right to decide when stop. It is evident that the '10' forms part of this group of players.

His wage, another obstacle to his course

Although it already is sufficient motivate the loyalty that Messi profesa to the Barça, his wage and his age also are two factors that do his little likely course. From the club know that these two things complicate even more his possible course. "With what earns, is very difficult that can assume it another club. By the age that has is a signing complicated to tackle", commented.
