Barcelona fans are making their feelings clear outside the Camp Nou after captain Lionel Messi told the club he wanted to leave on Tuesday.

Supporters have gathered outside the famous ground and have been calling for president Josep Maria Bartomeu to resign.

Messi wants to use a clause in his contract to leave now, but Barcelona believe the clause expired in June and is no longer valid, according to reports.

Cadena SER are reporting the Catalan giants have replied to Messi’s fax by telling their captain they want him to continue and finish his career at the club.
