The soccer superstar shocked the world Tuesday when he formally requested a transfer from FC Barcelona, the club with which he has spent the last 20 years and broken too many records to name. His well-documented frustration with Barcelona has reached a breaking point, and it looks like he won’t back away from the exit door for any reason.

They also review Bayern’s win over PSG in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final.
