    Wurst k?se scenario, Messi would have earned a billion over 22 years instead of 21, had he really wanted to stay. That would bypass FFP regulations.

    IIRC he had agreed to lower his salary by 50%, but I do not know if that was even ever verified. We could not compete with PSG.

    Laporta just isn't a very good president

    Didn't we mess it up ourselves? We let Messi become free agent and that's way more expensive towards the cap, right? How much cheaper Messi would have been if we re-signed him before he became free agent?

    That was definitely mess up from Laporta and CO. He thought Tebas would give them help..

    Laporta wanted Messi out. Messi wages and influence at the club were factors Laporta took into account. I also think some of the amigos like Pique backstabbed Messi and told Laporta there would be life after him.
    In Laportas defence Messi was too busy sulking during our cl humiliations.
