The Argentine forward Leo Messi does not belong to FC Barcelona since this Thursday, July 1, since his contract has ended, but in the Camp Nou everything remains the same and Leo continues to preside over the advertising posters of the big sponsors on the facade of the stadium. In addition, the shirts that hang in the Botiga of the Camp Nou continue, some, carrying their name on the back accompanying the number ’10’. The official club store is in the middle of the launch campaign of the new elastic for next season, and together with the De Jong or Ansu Fati hangs on the shelves the name of Leo Messi.
At first, it was said that since they did not have a contract, Barça could not sell them, but a clause allows the club to continue selling the jersey of Messi during three months.
The appearance of the Barça stadium and its surroundings is far from what it would be in normal conditions on a morning of July 1, but the effects of the pandemic can be seen in the lack of visitors and fans who come to buy and take photos in the enclosure blaugrana.
