Lionel Messi’s package of demands to stay at FC Barcelona was very serious

FC Barcelona said goodbye to Lionel Messi in 2021. Only by discharging the Argentinian’s salary could the Catalan superpower circumvent the Spanish salary ceiling. Although the demands of the star player were also very demanding.

El Mundo Deportivo was able to get hold of the mail traffic between FC Barcelona and father Jorge Messi. And it has to be said: Messi never intended to give up to continue playing football at the Camp Nou.

We briefly list the requirements:

1. A new contract until 2023 under the same conditions (75 million euros per season, ed.) and with the possibility that Messi can unilaterally extend the agreement for another season.

2. The salary increases automatically and proportionally if the Spanish legislation introduces a tax increase. In other words: the net salary of the Argentine must remain unchanged at all times.

3. An interest of three percent on the deferred payments during the corona period. Here too, Messi wants to take full advantage of the so-called wage cut.

4. A signing bonus of ten million euros.

5. The transfer clause of 700 million euros was scrapped and replaced by one of just 10,000 euros. Also here must The flea always get the last word. Intention? Being able to move back to Argentina at his wish.

6. A private box for Messi’s family at Camp Nou and a second box for… Luis Suarez.
