Barcelona fire their law firm for advising Messi

Barcelona have decided to part ways with the services of the Cuatrecasas law firm for advising Leo Messi on his intention to leave the club.

It is believed that it was the same law firm which urged the Argentine to send the burofax communicating his desire to leave the club.

Barcelona have deemed Cuatrecasas’ involvement in Messi’s potential departure from the Camp Nou as unacceptable, according Cronica Global.

Messi’s contract is a major point of conflict between club and player as the Argentine believes he can leave for free while Barcelona maintain that such an agreement was only valid until June 10.

On the contrary, the player’s lawyers insist that, because the competition was delayed due to the coronavirus, the date of that agreement is not valid.
