The Argentinian forward has decided to stay in the club after transfer row with the Club’s president.
He said; “I told to the club, to the president in particular, that I wanted to leave. They know this since the start of the past season. I told them during all last 12 months. But I will stay here because I don’t want to start a legal war”.
“The truth is that there is no project at this club. They just plug holes as and when things happen. I would never go for a war against the club of my life. That’s why I’m staying”, he continues.
“Bartomeu told me that the only way to leave was to pay the €700M clause – that’s impossible. But at the end of the season, the same Bartomeu said it was ‘my decision’, he didn’t kept his promise”.
“When I communicated my wish to leave to my wife, it was a brutal drama. The whole family began crying, my children did not want to leave Barcelona. But I’ve been telling the president & the club that I want to leave all year long!”.
