‘ I Never Asked Messi To Play For Free’ – Laporta

Barcelona President Joan Laporta has revealed that he did not ask Lionel Messi to play for free.

Messi left Barcelona in the summer after a disagreement concerning a new deal.

“I want this to be clear. In a radio show, I was told: ‘If Messi could have stayed for free?’ For free … I don’t know if it would have been possible, but I understand that it could have been.

“And for a while I was like, well, it could have been. But I never asked Messi to play for free and in that Messi is right because, other than that, he is the best player in the world. We knew he had a big offer and that was nonsense.

Anyway, it had to come from him, not from me. I never said that and a controversy was born which is distorted at the source.”

Messi recently won the 2021 Ballon d’Or award on Monday.
