The president of the Barcelona managing commission has said that he would have sold captain Lionel Messi in the summer.
Carles Tusquets, currently in charge of the running of the Blaugrana until the next presidential elections in January, made the shocking statement in a conversation with Catalan radio station RAC1:
“Economically speaking, last summer I would have sold Messi.
“It would have been desirable. For what you enter and for what you save.
“LaLiga demands salary limits.”
The Argentinian dealt Barcelona a humongous blow when he handed in a transfer request in August but made a U-turn on his stance in early September to stay at the club for the 2020/21 season.
The 33-year-old’s current contract expires in the summer of 2021 and is currently a target for PSG.
