Messi cannot play for Barcelona or PSG next season See why?
According to Javier Tebas, the president of La Liga, it is not anticipated that PSG star Lionel Messi will return to Barcelona for the following season.
Messi is now playing for Paris Saint-Germain. Until there is a ᴅʀᴀᴍᴀᴛɪᴄ change in the club’s financial condition, this will continue to be the case.
The renowned Argentine player’s current contract with PSG is slated to expire at the end of the 2022-2023 season; however, new terms for the deal have not been agreed upon by both parties. The deal is set to expire at the conclusion of the 2022-2023 season. Before this incident occurred, Messi’s return to Barcelona after being away for two years was a topic that was addressed in many of the newspapers that are published in Spain. Messi had been away from Barcelona for the previous two years. Yet, in the words of Javier Tebas, who serves as the President of La Liga, this will be an exceedingly remote possibility. This is especially true when one takes into consideration the ꜰᴀᴄᴛ that Lionel Messi already earns an annual salary of 34 million euros playing at the “Park of the Princes” stadium.
The following is a comment that was made by Javier Tebas on Mundo Deportivo: “Before Leo Messi can come back to Barcelona, there are a lot of things that need to be corrected. First, he was expected to accept a large wage cut, and second, the club was required to get go of players and take care of a range of other jobs that they had not yet finished. Neither of these things had been done yet. The only people who are capable of accomplishing it are the leaders of Barcelona, and in order to do so, they need to perform their calculations with an exceptionally high level of care.
The regulations are not going to be changed in any way, shape, or form. Messi will not be playing professionally for either Barcelona or PSG during the upcoming season. It’s a well-known ᴛʀᴜᴛʜ that Barcelona brings in significantly more cash than PSG does.”
In January, Javier Tebas claimed that in order for Barcelona to be able to attract new players or engage into a new contract, the club’s pay bill needs to be cut by 400-600 million euros. This was in response to a question regarding whether or not Barcelona would be able to reduce its pay bill. It has been stated by the media in Spain that Blaugrana is prepared to let vital first-team players leave, such as Ansu Fati and Raphinha, in order to make place for the return of Messi. This information comes from a story that was published in Spain.
In other Barcelona-related news, the name of Barcelona midfielder Gavi was removed off the roster of the Catalan team that was posted on the website of La Liga on March 25. Gavi had been listed as a member of the Catalan team previously. The registration of Gavi with Barcelona as a first-team player on a contract that extends through 2026 was the subject of a legal dispute between the club and the Spanish Football Association, which Barcelona ultimately lost. The contract in question extends through 2026 and states that Gavi will be paid by Barcelona until that date. According to The Athletic, even though Gavi is still able to play for Barcelona, the Spaniard may leave the Camp Nou if he is not registered as a first-team player by the deadline of June 30, 2023.
This is despite the ꜰᴀᴄᴛ that Gavi is still able to play for Barcelona. Because of this, Gavi would no longer be able to compete for Barcelona in the sport he loves.
Before this piece of information became public, a number of top clubs, including Liverpool, Manchester City, and Bayern Munich, had been in communication with Gavi’s agency in an attempt to pry the 18-year-old Spanish midfielder away from his present club. Gavi is a native of Spain.
