Camp Nou will witness an unfamiliar scene. Where Barcelona will play in the Spanish La Liga match. But the best player in the history of the team Lionel Messi will not be seen.
Even before the start of this month, Barcelona fans had hoped that their favorite club would sign a new contract with Lionel Messi. The discussion was going on in the same direction. But Barcelona has been caught in the crossfire of La Liga's economic rules. That is why Messi did not sign a new contract even after the two sides agreed.
As a result, Messi will not be seen in the Barcelona jersey for the next two seasons. Today (Sunday) the journey of Barcelona without Messi is starting. The Catalan club will face Real Sociedad in a La Liga match.
