Josep Maria Minguella, the representative that commissioned to bring to Leo Messi to the FC Barcelona when the Argentinian still was a boy, spoke again on the future of the rosarino in his channel of Youtube. The Catalan surprised with his statements, since it ensured that in spite of his wish, there is a "90 percent of possibilities" that the captain barcelonista remain in the Camp Nou this season.

It seems that the lawyers of the '10' thought that the clause of his agreement that allowed him leave free had expanded of date by the stop by the coronavirus, something that now no longer see with so much clarity. "They launched to the swimming pool. Somebody suggested him that with the delay of the championship the dates changed, but with the step of the time there are contacts between the two legal professions and today the dispatch of Leo does not have so clear the situation", declared.

Right now, according to account Minguella, the forward hardly has options to go out and the most likely is that it remain in the Barcelona. "There is a 90 percent of possibilities that Messi was still in the Barça", signalled. This would be due to that the club is safe that the date to remain free expired and automatically renewed his agreement a year more. "I understand that the agreement follows totally in force, that there has not been change in the dates", aimed.

By all this, neither the Manchester City, neither the PSG, neither any another team would dare to risk fichando to Messi by fear to have to pay his clause of 700 million euros in case that it show that has agreement in force with the Barcelona. "The interpretation of the clause limits that any institution step advance to buy a player saying that it is free, that a day have the legal threat that have to pay of a euro to 700 millions. Federativamente Is not easy", commented.

Minguella Explained how would be the case if Messi went to another club and the Barça reported him for having two simultaneous agreements. "The FIFA, if there is conflict, would give possibility to the footballer to play with his new club, but the Barcelona could report to the player by duplicity of agreement. With the duplicity of agreements, if Messi begins to play with another team, and the Barça demands, the career of Messi would remain paralysed. This does that the clubs interested think in the wrap that they can put ", matizó.

Messi decided not renewing six months ago

Finally, the agent explained that Leo carries six months refusing renew with the Barcelona. The international albiceleste would have tired that they mention him and of not being able to have this competitive sportive project that promised him. "Six months ago that practically broke any possibility of approach or of renewal and announced it to him to the club. It knew that it did not go to negotiate, that was tired of lies", finalised.
