Many Real Madrid fans don’t like Messi and his Barcelona FC but Real Madrid president has different position about him.
It has come to light that Real Madrid were allegedly willing to pay Leo Messi’s buyout clause in June 2013, a couple of months before closing the signing of Gareth Bale. Spiegel reported the offer of 250 million euros. The Argentinian’s lawyer informed his father, Jorge Messi, of the interest, and had it completed, the transfer would’ve smashed the world record. Their intention was to pay 23m euros net per year to Messi until 2021 and one million more to his father.
When Messi’s earning of 100 million euro per year news has been widely shared on social medias at this time. And at the same time, Real Madrid’s intention to pay 23m euros net per year to Messi until 2021 and one million more to his father seems to be very unattractive salary.
But Real Madrid has refuted any such bid had ever been made. “This information doesn’t conform in any way to reality, it is totally false,” they said.
The news includes more details, such as the bizarre plan to get Messi’s signature on the contract.
A meeting was to take place inside a private jet, in the presence of Leo Messi; his then lawyer Inigo Juarez; Florentino Perez; the then sports director, Miguel Pardeza; and a lawyer from Real Madrid.
