Barcelona Football Club has taken down all the Images of Lionel Messi from Camp Nou. This decision was taken after it was confirmed that the Argentine will not have his contract renewed.
The Catalan club and Messi parted ways after 21 years. The Spanish team could not renew the midfielder contract because of the financial fair play rule in Spain.
Lionel Messi has since moved on from the decision after the midfielder agreed to sign a 2 year-deal with Paris Saint Germain. He is expected to earn 25 million pounds a year after tax. The deal is still subject to medical.

PSG will hope the signing brings them the Ligue 1 title after they finished second behind Lille last season. The UEFA Champions League is also a trophy that the French team is craving and they will hope with including Messi in the team will win them the trophy for the first time.
The trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar will give defenders of every team they come up against a lot to worry about.
