Lionel Messi is the most important player of all time in the FC Barcelona. From the hand of the Argentine crack, the Catalan club has won all kinds of titles and records, although the story could be very different if Leo accepted an offer from the Real Madrid seven years ago.
As revealed by the Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, in his book ‘Gran Hotel Calciomercato’, where he addresses untold stories of the transfer market, the president Florentino Pérez he wanted to get Messi out of the Camp Nou in 2013, with an offer of 250 million euros.
Di Marzio’s book explains that this was the figure that freed Lionel Messi. Initially those 250 ‘kilos’ were destined for the remodeling of the Bernabéu stadium, but the Real Madrid board tried to spend them on the signing of the Rosario.
Unfortunately for the interests of the white club, the six-time Ballon d’Or did not take long to distance itself from Madrid. “I’m not going to Real Madrid, they are wasting time”, Messi said according to the book ‘Gran Hotel Calciomercato’ de Di Marzio.
As the aforementioned source points out, Lionel Messi did not even want to listen to the economic variant of the contract that Real Madrid offered. It was never known how much they were going to pay him or what they offered him to change the Barça shirt for the white one. The “no” of the ‘Flea’ was resounding.
To the revelations of ‘Gran Hotel Calciomercato’ we must add the uncovering of ‘Football Leaks’ a few years ago. According to this source, Real Madrid proposed to Messi an eight-year contract with a salary of 23 million euros per season. For his part, Jorge Messi, father of the Argentine star, was going to take 5% of the operation (16 million).
