Barcelona chairman Joan Laporta returns to talk about Lionel Messi. Unquestionably, Pulga's failure to renew with the Catalan club was an unexpected twist. Much more than the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus to Manchester United, or any other transfer market transaction.

Now the Argentinian finds himself an opponent of Barcelona in the Champions League and will wear the PSG shirt for this season and future ones. A club at the moment stellar. But the patron Blaugrana wanted to put an end to this story and made some statements to the Onze broadcast.

Joan Laporta can't bear to see Lionel Messi at PSG and doesn't hide it: “It was strange to see him wearing a different shirt from Barcelona. I did not like it". The president of the Spanish club recounted the mood after the failure to agree on the renewal: “I think both sides have been sick. We were very sorry, it was a disappointment. I haven't talked to Leo anymore “.

But in the future of Barcelona, ​​Leo Messi will always find a place: “What happened last month was not the end we would have liked to see in the history between the club and La Pulce. For him we show great and profound gratitude: he will always be a Barca player". Then Laporta underlined: “Without Griezmann and with the reduction of the salaries of the other players, Messi could not have stayed anyway. But it is important to have lowered the amount of wages because next year we will be more ambitious".
