"It does not have evidence that me Leo Messi can free without paying the clause. It does not have felt to sign an agreement with a player and that leave when it give him wins it. The agreements have to fulfil and sign it both parts", said.

"There is a clause of 700 million euros and that if Leo Messi wants to go, has to pay"

"Leo Messi is in his right to go , but has to fulfil the steps and the dates, as Xavi Hernández or Andrés Iniesta. All knew that it would not be eternal. The 2-8 has hurt to all the world, but this is not a decision of a day", sentenced.
