Some La Liga club presidents are ready to help in paying Messi’s wages.
contract at Camp Nou expired at the beginning of July, and he has been a free agent since then, and he hasn’t signed a new contract withBarcelona
yet. The main problem is that the club is already above their wage cap, so if they don’t reduce their wages, the new signings won’t be able to play for the club next season.
There have been reports suggesting that Barcelona is ready to sell the former Atletico Madrid’s player Antoine Griezmann to balance their financial situation, but there have been other reports making suggestions that might change the situation as they suggest that other La Liga clubs are ready to help Barcelona pay Messi’s wages to keep the Argentinian superstar in the league because they think that his departure from La Liga will not be a good thing for the league.
"There are elite presidents of Spanish football who are willing to make a contribution to pay for Messi's contract at Barcelona and keep him in Spanish football,"
journalist Roberto Gomez claimed on radiochannel El Transistor
"They say it's good for Barcelona and the Spanish league."
Messi's future with Barcelona has been the subject of many conversations in the last two seasons, and many of the club’s supporters have been worried about losing their legend after many successful years at the club, and now he has decided to think about his contract after Copa America, so we have to wait and see how the story of Messi and the Catalans will end.
