We are ready for Messi’s exit from Barcelona – LaLiga president, Tebas



LaLiga president, Javier Tebas, has insisted they are “prepared well” for the possibility of Lionel Messi leaving Barcelona.

The Coronavirus pandemic has already damaged the Spanish league’s bottom line.

And the Blaugranes alone are responsible for €1.2billion in debt. The exit of a main attraction like Messi would appear a worrisome moment.

But Tebas believes LaLiga is financially secure enough to withstand any harm.

“[Messi] couldn’t leave Barcelona because of an agreement in his contract, but as I said about Cristiano [Ronaldo], we also are prepared financially for this moment.

“Cristiano leaving Real Madrid was a decision made by the club. I don’t have the right to say anything, but I always prefer to have the best players in La Liga, the same happened with Neymar before.

“Cristiano was the ultimate goalscorer in La Liga and we were affected by his departure, but financial the impact was minimal because we prepared well for this moment,” Tebas told ONsport.
