"Messi? It goes progressing. He wants to remain, we want to that it remain . And we are on the way to find the formula". These were the words of Joan Laporta on the 'case Leo Messi' to 'Sports Four'. The president, that finally did not travel to Madrid this Friday, as it said , spoke from Barcelona on the future of the 'crack' Argentinian, that is still in the air.

The maximum mandator blaugrana, as it comes being usual these last months, threw of optimism to refer to the continuity of the '10'. For the moment, it has not achieved that it renew and the attacker has turned into 'free agent'. In spite of this, nevertheless, the lawyer and employer keeps on being optimistic, as it shows with his words. 'Jan' is convinced that the one of Rosario will remain and therefore it tries to reassure to the doubtful.

In principle, the president went to be this Friday in Madrid to speak with Javier Thebes on the agreement of Messi. The idea of the culés is to divide the total wage that would earn the six times Balloon of Gold during the two next courses along five years. Until 2023 it would earn like footballer of the Barça and since and until 2026 would do it like ambassador although it no longer was playing in the City Condal.

This formula that pretend to use the barcelonistas, however, would not go in in the legal parameter of LaLiga and would break with the limit salarial. Thus, Laporta expects that the president of the Spanish championship was generous and accept to open the hand so that the Barcelona can 'fichar' to Leo. To convince him, would use the letter that LaLiga would lose a lot of without the Argentinian and that economically that it remain benefits to all.

It will be necessary to see in what remain all and when celebrates this 'summit' between Thebes and Laporta, that promises to be decisive for the future of the already ex captain of the Barcelona. If the costarricense accepts the demands of the Barcelona president, the continuity of the Argentinian will be a bit more near. But in case that it deny accept, is possible that the Catalans have to renounce to his plans of 'fichar' to the 'crack'.

Inland revenue, another problem for Messi and the Barça

In addition to this, also is necessary to stand out that the Barça and Messi have to have a lot of care with Inland revenue with this new agreement. This is due to that in 2024, 2025 and 2026, purportedly without tributar in Spain, would be earning a wage that from the Spanish taxation could understand that it is thanks to what did with the Barcelona until 2023. This could bring him grave consequences to the club and to the own Leo, that already have antecedents and that they could finish in the prison. For this reason, everything is studying carefully to leave it very tied.
