Lionel Messi’s final season at Camp Nou, his eventual departure, and the circumstances behind his original wish to leave Barcelona will all be covered in a new documentary, the Catalan club said on Thursday.

The documentary will also include behind-the-scenes video from Barca’s 8-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, Quique Setien’s dismissal, Luis Suarez’s transfer to Atletico Madrid, and Ronald Koeman’s hiring and firing.

It will also see the re-election of Joan Laporta as president of Barcelona, the return of Xavi Hernandez as head coach, and it will conclude with a summer in which the team spent over €150 million on players like Robert Lewandowski.

The new documentary will be called ”Barcelona, a new era”

The “Barcelona, a new era” docuseries will be accessible to view on Prime Video in December. There will be five episodes, each lasting 30 minutes. The documentary “reveals the ins and outs of the previous two years of the club,” according to a statement released by Barca on Thursday.

It addresses the process of reassembling the team as well as the club’s institutional and financial revitalization.

When Barca lost 8-2 against Bayern in 2020, manager Setien was fired, the entire team was purged, and Messi asked to be transferred since he had “distanced himself from president Josep Maria Bartomeu,” according to the club’s statement.

The documentary will revealed why Lionel Messi left the club and what happen with settien

Even though Messi continued to play under Koeman for one season, it ended up being his final one in the colors of Barcelona as newly elected president Laporta was forced to let him leave since he could not afford to keep him. Messi signed with Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent that season

The documentary promises to take viewers behind the scenes of his final year in Catalonia while highlighting some of the other key events the team has experienced over the past two years
