Until the last minute, Joan Laporta hoped that Lionel Messi would stay at FC Barcelona, ​​even if he played for free for the Catalan club. La Pulga therefore wanted to respond to Barça president on this point.

Last summer, Lionel Messi did everything to stay at FC Barcelona . However, with the Catalan club lacking in funds, the Argentinian was forced to leave the formation in which he had played since the start of his career. The PSG did not hesitate for a single second and very quickly, Lionel Messi became a player of the Rouge-et-Bleu. Since then, several revelations have started to surface about the departure of the 34-year-old from FC Barcelona . Indeed, the Blaugrana would have considered a particular solution: to play the Pulga for free. In an interview for RAC1, Joan Laporta even said he hoped “that at the last minute Lionel Messi would say he was going to play for free. “ Lionel Messi therefore wanted to provide an answer to that.

” My wish and that of my family was to stay in Barcelona “

” The Truth is, as I explained on the way out, I did my best to stay, at no time was I asked to play for free. I was asked to reduce my salary by fifty percent and I did so without any problem. We were able to help the club more. My wish and that of my family was to stay in Barcelona. No one has asked me to play for free but at the same time it seems to me that the words the president has spoken are irrelevant. They hurt me because I think he doesn't need to say that, it's like taking the ball away from you and not taking the consequences, or taking matters into your own hands. It makes you think or generates a type of doubt that I think I do not deserve ”revealed the PSG player in an interview for SPORT.
