Mundo Deportivo’s headline is simple ‘Untransferable.’ The Catalan daily are insisting Messi is simply not for sale and is a “vital” part of Ronald Koeman’s project.
President Josep Maria Bartomeu has decided it is simply not good business to lose the club’s greatest ever player who is also a massive commercial asset.
The report says Barcelona understand Messi’s anger but if he asks to leave they will offer him a gentle reminder than he has a €700 million release clause.
Sport are also talking about Messi yet again and what would be a ‘Difficult Exit’. They reckon he needs to make a decision soon because pre-season is due to start on August 31.
The report also notes how Messi’s huge release clause makes things complicated.
Sport are also reporting on Saturday that Paris Saint-Germain, Inter and Juventus are all “on the look-out” for Messi.
The trio are thought to be the most likely options if the captain does decide to go.
