Barcelona club directors have revealed that they might offload the player to the highest bidder, as their limited financial resources coupled with large debts means they might not be able to afford the player’s wage demands.
Barca are nearing the 70% limit that La Liga place on clubs for expenditure on wages and Messi’s contract expires in 18 months.
We want the best players but perhaps we have to prioritise,’ said Barcelona director Oscar Grau.
‘We have to make the numbers add up. One option is to increase our revenues, as our economic strategy forecasts. ‘The club wants the best player in the world to stay at Barca. I would like to ease the concerns of club members and supporters but we have to use common sense.’
