    Offt I did not expect that after comments from him the last couple days (Bart, not Messi).

    Clearly must have been hauled to the side after it and told where to go.
    Messi may see this as victory and depending how Koeman does with the younger players this season, could just be enough for Messi to stay long term now.


    But likely, too little too late.

    A glorious outcome, a shining example of democracy in action during a pandemic and all under 2 months

    Rebuild begins as will undoubtedly a litany of lawsuits against Bartomeu et al

    irrespective of Leo’s future at club, it wouldn’t have been possible without that interview- he is our leader

    That's when a player has too much power. The ability to get rid of the entire board :56: mental. Not saying they haven't been doing * just crazy how a player can have so much power.

    Messi was just the catalyst, as he should have been.

    He never pointed anything out that wasn’t factual.

    Frustrations clear to see when hounded on his arrival from a transatlantic flight tonight. Bartomeu/Rosell may be out but Grupo Godo continuing to pressure him out by proxy. It's nauseating, even with Font/Laporta I now see an almost mission impossible to convince him to stay.

    Adding insult to injury, Spanish treasury boarded his plane upon arrival in Spain for an hour on the tarmac. He's being hounded by design. It will no longer be a question of sporting project to convince but protecting him from the Nuñistas that destroy our heroes. 2nd half of season will be interesting because this is the first public comment he has really made since his August interview

    Élections currently in 3rd week of January making it virtually impossible for the interim management council to sanction this significant a transfer but City no doubt will seek to recruit him now if elections can be moved up

    Doubt Messis wage has been affected seems he has them by the balls.


    Barcelona have reached an agreement in principle with their playing staff to implement wage cuts which will save the club €122m, they confirmed on Friday night.

    It is a significant moment for the club and follows weeks of negotiations, with several of the previous deadlines set by the Blaugrana not reached. Indeed, a report from Catalan based media outlet Esport3 earlier this month said two extensions to the deadline were granted after negotiating deadlocks.

    It has been reported that the club were aiming to save €190m by these measures and whilst this saving will fall short of that amount, it is still seen as significant.
    On top of the immediate saving of €122m, the club have deferred €50m of variable payments over a three-year period.

    The club recently confirmed contract extensions for defender Gerard Pique through to 2024, while goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has penned a deal through until 2025 while both Clement Lenglet and Frenkie de Jong have extended their stays through until 2026.

    These deals included a temporary salary adjustment – which likely indicates that the four have agreed reduced salaries in the short-term but will be reimbursed with an improved deal in the long-term.

    The club accounts show that Barcelona’s debt had more than doubled during the 2019-20 campaign amid extremely worrying financial results.

    The club’s financial figures, as outlined by Marca, show that the debt at the club has risen from €217m in June 2019 to €488m in June 2020.

    Whilst the club’s first-team squad has been slimmed down this year, with a reported €80m off the wage bill, there is still a worrying financial outlook for the club.

    Poor from Messi, very immature stuff.

    Would imagine he'll as he intimated go to America to tan the last couple years of his career although would be great to see him up against Ronaldo again or even with him.

    I thought there would have been more cameras at the game to get clear footage from different angle.

    :56: :56: it was clear as day with the angle they had. Why would you want other angles. Ban him for 7 games. Poor man's Ronaldo.

    I’d have banned the clown who put his head in the road of the GOAT’s arm.
