The club that the Argentine played for throughout his senior career found it impossible to renew with the No. 10, which led to French club Paris Saint-Germain.
This Monday, however, former president of Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu, guaranteed that this departure could have been avoided, blaming Messi for not having renewed for two years, something that guarantees he was even awake.
“Messi’s departure is a problem. I fought a lot in the summer of 2020 for him to stay at the club. Now he wanted to stay, but he had to leave. His case is different from that of Neymar, Figo or Rivaldo. In July 2020 I reached an agreement with Messi to renew it for two years, but then everything fell apart. You have to ask Messi why», said the former manager of the program ‘Las vacas sagradas’ on Esport3.
