A different perspective
Honestly, I can’t even imagine that after Messi has agreed to take pay cuts and after the new injection of cash to the La Liga clubs by CVC, and that the contract renewal was about to be confirmed yesterday, but the la Liga giants came up with a different statement that shocked the entire world. It has been rumoured that Aguero is also demanding a transfer as he can’t play with Messi in the upcoming. But now it is time to notice some important facts and how the entire contract situation can turn on its head. After the loan has been confirmed by La Liga, numerous amount of rumours says that Real Madrid is against it all may be due to the fear that it might hamper the Super League that Florentino Pérez has planned for, some reports even say that Real Madrid is going to go for legal proceedings.
So what could be the outcome?
Firstly, we need to notice that 10 days or more are left for transfers, maybe it’s time for La Liga to change the regulations that they so strictly have. It’s known to all of us that FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta even said that they demand relaxation from La Liga. Also, it’s a bullet fired at those rumours that expect Real Madrid are going to take legal proceedings.
After all who doesn’t want Messi to stay, be that any club or any League. Let’s sit back -+for these 10 days and hope for the best.
