Lionel Messi has another state of mind. His relationship with Joan Laporta's much friendlier than the one he had with the previous authorities. That is why in Barcelona they're excited to continue enjoying his talent, despite the fact that several heavyweights in Europe want him from June. However, it will not be easy: the offer they made is ridiculous.
In the act of assumption, Joan Laporta was clear: he spoke directly to La Pulga (he was in the audience) asking him to stay. It is the wish of all Catalans, although that interest would not be reflected in the economic efforts. The reason? As reported by El Chiringuito, La Pulga was offered 30 million euros per year, reducing more than 50% of the current salary (he charges 75 million).
According to what they say, the Rosario, with that low salary, could give a message to the campus and help to face the economic crisis of the institution. Will he be willing? This monetary lock could be added to a sports one. The new president continues to negotiate with Sergio Agüero (a close friend of La Pulga), but for Ronald Koeman it isn't a priority, considering that he has three other alternatives ahead of Kun.
Barcelona is looking for two more Argentines
Ronald Koeman has already given the managers two names of players to try to sign "at low cost". These are the Argentine defenders Lisandro Martínez, from Ajax, and Marcos Senesi, from Feyenoord, are in the sights of Barcelona for the next season, as revealed this Thursday by the Catalan press, which indicated that Lionel Messi's team is looking for "a left-handed central".
