No Surprise As La Liga Backs Barcelona In Messi Dispute

Lionel Messi Transfer News

No surprise to hear that La Liga have released an official statement backing Barcelona in the contract saga with their superstar Lionel Messi.

La Liga president Javier Tebas has already seen two of the biggest names in the world, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo leave Spain for PSG and Juventus respectively, and the last thing he wants it to see is Lionel Messi playing in another league next season.

So it was not a surprise to see La Liga back Barcelona in the Messi contract dispute, releasing this statement on their website:

Messi’s Former Agent Expects Him To End Up At Inter Milan

Lionel Messi Priceless

Lionel Messi “already has a new team” and will join Inter instead of Manchester City, according to the agent who instigated his move to Barcelona as a youngster.

Messi rocked Barcelona, and all of world football, on Tuesday when the six-time Ballon d’Or winner handed in a transfer request.

The 33-year-old is reported to have had a clause in his contract that would allow him to unilaterally terminate their agreement following the 2019-20 season in order to join another club.

Lionel Messi Hands In Transfer Request

Lionel Messi Transfer News

We knew things were bad at the Camp Nou between the Barcelona players and the board. We knew that Lionel Messi was upset but still we were shocked when the news came out that Messi had activated a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave on a free transfer this summer.

Although his contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 season, Messi and his legal team believe the clause will allow him to terminate his deal unilaterally.

PSG Offer Messi Landing Place In Paris

Lionel Messi Priceless

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has declared Lionel Messi is “very welcome” to join the club should the Barcelona star decide to pursue a move away from Camp Nou.

The Argentine legend has once again been linked with a possible Barca exit after seeing his side end the season without a trophy and lose 8-2 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Tuchel himself failed to guide his side past Bayern on Sunday as the Bundesliga giants claimed their sixth Champions League title with a 1-0 win over PSG.

Barcelona Board Consider Selling Messi

Lionel Messi Priceless

That is not a typo. Some members of the Barcelona board are actually in favor of selling the clubs best ever players, and one of the top five players ever to have played this game.

New Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has publicly said he wants to build the team around Messi, but ESPN is reporting that some directors say that they would be prepared to listen to offers that would allow Koeman to rebuild the team at the same time as reducing the wage bill.

Does Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu really want to be remembered as the president who sold Lionel Messi?

Barcelona Hire Ronald Koeman

Ronald Koeman is Barcelona's new coach

Barcelona have hired their former player Ronald Koeman to replace Quique Setien, after the Spaniard was sacked for overseeing a poor end to the 2019/20 season.

Koeman has left his role as Netherlands head coach and has signed on a two-year deal, although the second year of that will come after the club’s next round of elections and, as such, there may be a new administration who’ll want to bring in their own coach.

For 2020/21, though, Koeman will be the man in charge as he seeks to steer Barcelona back to winning ways.

Josep Bartomeu Promises Mass Clear Out At Barcelona

Josep Bartomeu

It was a disastrous end to the season for Barcelona. They threw away the La Liga title and were embarrassed in the Champions League by Bayern Munich.

The collapse cost manager Quique Setien and technical director Eric Abidal their jobs. Attention has now shifted to the Barcelona board whose incompetent board spending of €250 milllion on Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho to replace Neymar, played a big role in the mess that Barcelona finds itself in today.

But club president Josep Bartomeu does not accept blame for the demise of the club that Cruyff and Pep built. Instead, Bartomeu places the blame at the feet of Gerard Pique, Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets.

Barcelona SACK Quique Setien

Quique Setien

Barcelona have sacked manager Quique Setien in the wake of their humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The club fired Setien following a hastily-convened emergency meeting on Monday morning after suffering one of the darkest defeats of their 120-year history to cap a trophyless season.

Former Barcelona player and current Holland manager Ronald Koeman is poised to become the club’s new manager.

A statement on Barcelona’s official website read:

‘This is the first decision within a wider restructuring of the first team which will be agreed between the current technical secretary and the new coach, who will be announced in the coming days.’

Valencia Puts Entire Squad Up For Sale

Fire Sale

Valencia have alerted clubs across Europe that they have put of their players up for sale in a bid to balance the books as a result of COVID-19.

Winger Ferran Torres became the most high-profile player to leave the club when the 20-year-old moved to Manchester City for £37 million last week, and other stars are now expected to follow suit.

The La Liga side have confirmed that former Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has moved to Villarreal in a deal that is expected to also see their rivals snap up Spain international Dani Parejo for a combined total of under £11.5million.
