Recently, Barcelona president Joan Laporta insisted that it was best to allow Lionel Messi to depart the team.
Recall Messi ended his 21-year at Barcelona in 2021 when he departed Camp Nou.
Following the termination of his contract, the Argentina captain left Barcelona as a free agent.
Messi’s sad departure from the Catalan giants was prompted by a dire financial crisis the team was experiencing.
According to Goal, Barca’s president said, “I had to put Barca ahead of the greatest player in football history.
“In those moments of financial ruin, I could not retain him. I think it was the best for the club. Right now, he is a PSG player, and I prefer not to talk about him.”
