I keep getting this sinking feeling that Pep will meet Messi and actually try and convince him to stay at Barcelona ffs. I hope i'm wildly wrong, but it'd be a very Pep thing to do...
I think we'll say to Barca something like we can only afford x amount but if that's not enough we'll just negotiate a contract with Messi for when he's available on a free. Sounds like Barca are desperate to me and are trying to see how soft we are.Not sure of the exact wording. I have a feeling I have seen something which specified the 10th June 2020 which makes it more problematic.
you are right... I just read this brilliant in depth article about Bartomeu and holy fucken shit. Its really messy in there. I am more convinced now that this whole thing is a ploy to get a transfer fee for Messi and the 700m or fuck off release clause is just a starting point thatll end up around that 100-150m mark to wipe Barcas debts.
It's hard to imagine any club would want to lose of a player as incredible as Messi, but life at Barcelona hasn't been smooth for a whiletheathletic.co.uk
Barto wants Messi out. This article also really explains well the crazy poltiical shit going on over there.
Pep won't be in Spain because he would need to Quarantine for 2 weeks when he came back.Agreed. Would be up there with the team against Lyon as a huge WTF Pep moment. Luckily thats not going to happen, Pep would be daft to not want him here and we know HRH would love it if he rocked up at the Etihad.
Definitely. But he’s also in love with Messi the player. The chance to coach him again is something he never thought he’d get.
Nah , not having that one bit.Neymar and Mbappe deals were bigger both in terms of value and significance
