With Paris Saitn-Germain getting all the spotlight over the past two weeks, FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta made clear his stance on two club-state players.
The president of the FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta, had a recent interview with 'L'Esportiu', with Paris Sain-Germain, that follows like fashionable subject in these days. The leader culé had words for the players that do life in the club-state, directed from Qatar, remembering especially to two ex Barcelona, Leo Messi and Neymar. "The players that have fichado by teams like the PSG, practically have signed his slavery, have done it everything by money", alleged Laporta.
Some firm statements, but that probably do not go to seat very well in the French capital and much less, in the president To the-Khelaïfi. These words did reference of clear way, among others footballers, to Messi and to 'Ney', two footballers that have gone out in the last years from the Camp Nou with direction to the PSG and that have found with agreements multimillionaires, practically irrechazables.
However, this type of commitments purchased by the footballers are an option that does not share Joan Laporta. "We are not in disposal to make an operation of purchase of what can cost a traspaso of these players. But it is that neither that had the money would do it. It would be an irrationality", added. "It would be afterwards a question rather of the technician that thought if they can fit or no in the new project of the Barça. Like footballers, the two, like me a lot of", stood out
Laporta Admitted that it is a big admirer of the Brazilian but that the accounts right now would not allow to tackle an operation of this type: "Who would not want to have to Neymar? It is exceptional but all these players so that they can return some day to the Barça would have to do it free". Of this form the Barcelona president went back to put of self-evident that the economic situation of the club is almost to the limit, what does almost impossible can explain again with the footballer, that in his day left to the PSG by 222 million euros.
Messi, in 2023?
With regard to Leo, Laporta signalled that "it has gone as it has gone. We would have wanted to all that finished his sportive life here and by the reasons that are has not been able to be. These players, when they go in in a dynamics like this, find with that they can not go out, because the operations are of a lot of million euros", explained.
The Catalan president added also that, in the case of Neymar, does not know "how will do it in France, because perhaps they have other systems that do not have here, but cancel in advance an agreement that is signed costs a lot of money. Also it is true that the PSG has a state behind, have a lot of money and can that they can do a payment in advance to terminate an agreement like this", aimed.
