Just after Barcelona Football Club declared that Messi will no longer stay at the club, there have been several clubs who are interested in signing the best footballer in the world. According to the club president Laporta, they had earlier agreed with Messi to sign. a five-year contract which he was to be paid for two years only. The president confirmed that Lionel Messi had accepted to be paid for two years only but La Liga didn’t allow that.
Mr.Laporta stated that “We had an agreement with Messi to sign a five-year contract but paying him two years salary. Leo agreed on the contract, it was ACCEPTED. We were convinced it was a good agreement for Financial Fair Play but it wasn’t allowed by La Liga.” The club’s decision to terminate Messi’s contract was due to their struggling economic and structural obstacles. The club said that it is not able to pay Messi the whole salary until 2026 that’s why they had agreed to pay him for two years.
When Laporta asked what will happen if Messi will not accept any bid except Barcelona, he said that Messi will have to speak for himself since he is the best player in the world and has many bids that he can consider. Laporta added that “Leo Messi had other offers on the table but he wanted to STAY, also if our proposal was inferior from a financial point of view. He was NOT creating any problem, trust me – he did many financial efforts to stay here, the contract was agreed.”
Several teams have shown interest in signing the Argentina player. Various fans have already designed posters showing Messi on their jersey. Chelsea, Manchester United, Paris Saint Germaine (PSG), Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Arsenal are interested in signing the world’s best player. The choice of the club that Messi is set to join will depend on him and not anyone else. It is not yet confirmed the club that Messi wants to join.
