The presidential candidate for Barcelona was shocked to admit that the team could not compete with PSG in the fight to keep Messi.
Barcelona has been going through a turbulent year with a series of unhappy events. The Covid-19 pandemic put the team’s financial situation in jeopardy, president Josep Bartomeu had to resign soon, and superstar Messi wanted to go to find a new stop.
Until now, Leo Messi has not renewed his contract with Barcelona despite being in the final year of the contract signed in 2020. This means that the Argentine superstar can freely negotiate to find a berth. new park when the winter transfer market opens in January.
Currently, PSG and Man City are the two clubs pursuing this deal and the representative from France holds a great opportunity. They own a large enough salary fund to pay Messi and use the Neymar card to convince the Barcelona captain.
Recently, the candidate for the upcoming president of Barcelona, Agusti Benedito, admitted that the Catalunya team is inferior to other competitors in keeping Messi due to financial problems. That is not in dispute. He knew he wanted to leave last summer and the decision to stay for now is only temporary.
Therefore, the first thing Barcelona needs to do is make Messi change his mind because if we have to compete financially to keep his signature, the result will be very catastrophic. When he learned that Neymar was trying to persuade Messi to join PSG, he had to say that Barcelona would lose.
PSG is owned by oligarchs from the Middle East so money is no problem for them. If PSG pays Messi, he cannot afford it. He hopes Messi will celebrate his love with the club for the past 20 years and say that he stays.
Previously, another candidate for the presidency in Barcelona announced that Messi had to reduce his salary to £ 500,000 / week to renew his contract. However, the Argentine superstar is the decider in this deal. Go or stay completely subordinated to Leo Messi.
