Barcelona:

Brazil World Cup winner Rivaldo is leaving Spanish giants Barcelona, the club revealed in a joint statement with the player on Sunday. The 1999 World Footballer of the Year and the Spanish first division side stressed the decision had been reached amicably. The 30-year-old striker leaves the Catalan outfit with one year of his contract to run. He has been linked with a move to Italian side Lazio in recent weeks, though there was no immediate word on his future. Another option is a move to Barcelona's fierce rivals, Real Madrid, although Real have distanced themselves with a transfer. (PTI)
