PARIS: After announcing his intention to quit the club, Lionel Messi said that he will now stay at Barcelona and honour the last year on his current contract.

The Argentine player had informed the management at Barcelona that he wanted to exercise a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave for free.

But the club insisted that a €700 million buyout clause would have to be met.

The decision ends weeks of uncertainty over Messi’s future at the crisis-hit club.
