As a result, supporters have taken to Twitter to express their feelings following the news of the Messi’s departure.
One fan Tweeted saying: ‘Real Madrid and Barcelona have fucked up so heavily in the past 5 years it’s incredible. Horrible leadership at top of both teams and at the top of La Liga. Good luck competing with the premier league now without Messi and Ronaldo.’
