The flow contract for the 28-year-old at Madrid is set to terminate at the finish of the season 2020-21 and Zidane is probably not going to offer him another deal. Javier Tebas said that Lionel Messi will be a greater misfortune to La Liga than Cristiano Ronaldo and pleaded with the captain of Barcelona to remain in Spain.
Ronaldo played for Real Madrid for nine years, before joining Juventus for € 100 million out of 2018. The transfer was viewed as a setback to the international image of the Spanish League, with expectations at the time proposing that it may even have financial outcomes, yet La Liga president Tebas said the international exit of Portugal had “nearly no impact.”
Manchester United and Arsenal are required to watch the midfielder this summer, to sign him. In comparison, Tebas said the league would endure accordingly if Messi somehow managed to exchange Barca for another club outside of Spain.
Tebas told RAC1 on Thursday, “The departure of Christiano, although irritated by Madrid, had almost no impact since La Liga went through years guaranteeing that the brand transcends the players. In any case, the situation with Messi is unique. Messi is the Game’s best player ever. We’ve been fortunate to have him for his whole career at La Liga.
“Be that as it may, the situation with Messi is extraordinary. Messi is the Game’s best player ever. We’ve been fortunate to have him for his whole career at La Liga. I think you ‘d note Messi ‘s departure, especially in the event that he was heading off to an alternate league. It wouldn’t be a disaster because we have TV deals marked with or without Messi, yet it’s the value adds that is significant. Messi delights us perpetually,” he added.
For over a decade the on-pitch rivalry among Messi and Ronaldo has been one of the main topics of the season, with the two sharing 11 of the last 12 Ballon d’Or trophies between them. In that time, just Luka Modric, in 2018, managed to crack the authority.
Messi, who turns 33 one week from now, will be out of contract the following summer and will be free to negotiate with potential suitors in January in the event that he fails to sign another deal.
