Summer is approaching and so the situation will be addressed more and more often. Lionel Messi and Barcelona. Two big names that may be reunited during the upcoming transfer window. But what does Javier Tebas, the boss of the Spanish top flight, have to say about it now?
Lionel Messi is only under contract at PSG until the end of this season and his future is being widely discussed across the media. A summer return to his beloved Barcelona seems the most likely at the moment.
According to several foreign journalists, Messi’s wife has even already enrolled her children in one of Barcelona’s schools and in turn has withdrawn them from the one in Paris. Moreover, the Argentine himself was recently in Barcelona before the Catalan team’s match with Atlético Madrid.
But there are a few catches. The biggest one is the financial situation of the Spanish La Liga leader. The latter has been complicating Barcelona’s transfer plans for quite some time now. And complications may also arise when trying to bring back their biggest club legend.
So the French slice of RMC Sport approached La Liga boss Javier Tebas to help at least briefly clarify the situation and explain how realistic or unrealistic this spectacular comeback is.
“At the moment it seems too complicated. There is still time, of course, but Barcelona will have to sell some of their players and also reduce wage costs,” Tebase is quoted by Football-España.
“In addition, there is one crucial piece of information that we don’t know. That is Messi’s wages. So there are still many variables that can affect the situation,” added the La Liga boss.
Tebas eventually stated that Barcelona are simply not like PSG and do not have rich owners behind them. It is worth noting that the head of Spain’s top competition has long been critical of the so-called “state clubs”, which includes PSG.
