Lionel Messi ended intense speculation about his future on Friday by saying he will remain with Barcelona for another year.
The Argentine six-times world player of the year had told the club last month that he wanted to leave, insisting a clause in his contract allowed him to do so on a free transfer.
Barcelona, backed by La Liga, have insisted that a 700 million euros ($824 million) release clause would have to be paid.
“I wasn’t happy and I wanted to leave.
“I have not been allowed this in any way and I will stay at the club so as not to get into a legal dispute.
“The management of the club led by Bartomeu is a disaster,” Messi told website Goal.com.
