Laporta & Messi

FC Barcelona's former president, Joan Laporta, has participated in the program Luis Attaque, presented by Luis Fernandez at radio RMC SPORT, Monaco. He talked about Leo Messi, Neymar, and their future in the Catalan club.

Will Messi leave Barcelona?

  • "Never, never! I think he will never leave the club. It is part of our history and our hearts."
  • "As president, I received a lot of offers from clubs like Inter Milan or others which wanted to pay his clause. I always told them it was impossible."

And what about Neymar?

  • "The problem is that the economic situation of the club is very weak."
  • "To balance the club financially, the current president should transfer players or sell real estate assets. The easy solution is to sell players."
