The most anticipated announcement by the Barça fans is only a matter of time.

An exit that, as noted long ago, could be destined for the MLS American. And, in the event that you decide to put your desire to know another type of football on hold and bet on fully complying with it, your record will be gradually reduced over the three years that you have left on your contract.
