After the American team Inter Miami failed to reserve a place in the American Football League qualifiers, rumors began to spread about the possibility of Leo Messi returning to Barcelona on loan, since there is no football in America at this time.
Barcelona does not want to fuel these rumors, knowing that the Argentine’s return is not possible or impossible.
Last summer, Barça President Joan Laporta pushed hard for the return of the “Bulga”, but he did not succeed and the case was closed. Laporta insisted on praising the best player in the history of the club and football, stressing that he deserves a farewell worthy of him.
Barcelona reveals that, even if it is possible to loan Messi for a few months, it cannot register the player for reasons related to fair play and that he is still in a very difficult situation.
The Spanish newspaper “Sport” explains that “even if the player arrives on loan and gets a little money, the Spanish League will deduct a significant portion of Barcelona’s salary bill, and calculate the large salary that it believes the player deserves to receive, as actually happened with the Portuguese Joao Felix.” , who receives 400 thousand euros after deducting taxes, while the Spanish League estimates his salary at about 4 million.
In addition, Sport learned that the Argentine player and his environment are not thinking – basically – about the possibility of returning to Barcelona.
As far as the club is concerned, the first priority of the winter transfer window is to register Gavi’s contract currently registered by court order, and the second priority is to sign Brazilian Vitor Roque next January.
The young star, who had already signed for the Catalan team for 30 million euros in addition to 31 million euros in variables, was recovering from an ankle injury and should arrive next year to be a ready replacement for Polish scorer Robert Lewandowski.
In order to achieve these goals, Barcelona will have to generate additional income, and the “Blaugrana” was supposed to receive about 40 million euros from the sale of a percentage of Barcelona’s studios, but the German fund “Lipro” has not paid it yet, even though it has been due since last August. .
If Barcelona achieves all the required goals and succeeds in implementing fair play obligations, the third priority will be to strengthen the midfield position, something that the club also considers very complex.
