Calendar of FC Barcelona

The appearance of Joan Laporta in front of the media to clear the "lies" of Bartomeu in his letter to the president culé gave for everything, from signalling of clear and direct form to the previous board as for also leave some recado between lines, included Leo Messi between the addressees.

Laporta Arrived speaking of Leo, embracing it and until conmoviéndose when speaking of him, ensuring that it would do the possible for renewing it and at the same time, declaring each week that the negotiations went on the way suitable, progressing "of satisfactory way". But it did not go like this and it finished going out of the club.

The mandator cleared that as they understood the numbers presented by the previous board the things yes left on the way suitable, but that once sincerada the economic situation, was impossible and this finished breaking any agreement, that was by two years as far as declared the president of the club.

First message

Laporta Was asked after the exit of Messi and although it indicated that the intention was to renew him, also left in the air that "a player like him has his aspirations", something that does not go in the line of what until the day of the farewell commented with the "considerable effort" fact by the player.

Even Messi the recalcó, leaving clear that the club "asked a discount of 50%" and accepted it, but that after this "did not ask more at all", what left opened the possibility that anything that asked the Barcelona would be accepted by the Argentinian. Laporta Seems to have taken advantage of the situation and of discreet form, send his answer.

Second message

"What felt when seeing the presentation of Messi in the PSG?", it went one of the questions to Laporta. The president in the middle of a laugh something pícara ensured that had feelings found because it did not imagine to the player out of the club, but also matizando that it saw it "very happy", this last with some particular tone.

Messi went of the Barcelona in the middle of a lot of tears, weigh and an evident empty, something that does not doubt , but his duel happened of prompt page and as it was logical, assumed the new challenge with a lot of illusion in his new club, however to Laporta seems to have him caused something more than only happiness by which went his best player.

Third message

That seems repetition of the previous. The words of Jorge Messi, father of Leo Messi, when indicating that the manager of the no renewal had to ask " in the club" had the same answer that his presentation with the PSG, since in spite of the disposal of both parts, now is in Paris and is what explains.
