Real Madrid is ready to help Barcelona keep Messi: Onda Cero
Real Madrid are ready to help Barcelona out so they manage to tie Leo Messi down to a new deal, the reliable Onda Cero claim.
Madrid believes that Messi staying in La Liga is essential for the marketing potential and value of the league, it’s reported.
The Argentine could drive additional income to all parties involved, which would be critical to the clubs that have been affected by the pandemic.
Thus, Onda Cero say that Madrid want to ask La Liga whether there is any ‘flexibility’ about the regulations which are currently impending his registration.
La Liga are set to discuss a new broadcasting deal with the sponsors and want to have the agreement settled by September.
Javier Tebas, the league’s president, understands that La Liga with and without Leo is completely different in terms of income.
For now, the league reportedly wants everything to be solved in accordance with the existing rules.
But it’s not excluded that Barca are granted more leeway eventually so they are able to keep the 34-year-old.
As per reports, Messi has already agreed on a new five-year deal with the Catalans.
However, Blaugrana are unable to officially register him as they are already exceeding the salary cap imposed by the league.
