Lionel Messi on Friday confirmed that he will continue his stay at Barcelona as he said that he doesn't want to take the club he loves to the court.
Messi, in an interview, expressed how emotional it
was when he told his wife and children that he wants to leave the club.

Messi, earlier last week, had sent a burofax to Barcelona while requesting them to let him leave for
free, as per a clause in his contract. However, Barcelona were adamant that the clause has expired and any club wanting to acquire Messi's services will
have to pay EUR 700 million release clause.
