La Liga president Javier Tebas stressed that the league will go well and will continue to progress. After Lionel Messi leaves in new talks, a move to Manchester City is very important.
Pep Guardiola’s men will sign the Argentine over the summer when Messi tries to move away from Barcelona.
It didn’t work out, but City were still able to sign the 33-year-old for free after eight months.
Wednesday’s newspapers claim City could even try to sign Messi in January.
However, it seems inevitable that Messi and Barcelona are heading for a split.
His departure will leave a huge void at Barcelona given the crazy record he’s been breaking over the years.
However, Messi’s exit will also leave the league without leaving as a whole.
However, Tabas firmly believes – like Cristiano Ronaldo before him – that the Spanish Primera Liga can handle it.
However, he could not withstand a huge blow against Manchester City.
“We prefer Messi to stay in the league. But Ronaldo and Neymar left and we don’t see any difference,” said Tebas. “We are ready.
“It seems that the only club in the Premier League who are talking about signing Messi is Manchester City, who are playing outside the rules.
“I’m not the only one who said that.
“I don’t really worry about them. I often criticize what they do. It’s okay to do it again.
“This city is not affected by Covid, the pandemic or the like because they are financed differently and it is impossible to fight them off.”
However, after Josep Maria Bartomeu leaves, it is possible that the Argentine superstar will still be left behind.
While many supporters welcomed Bartomeu’s death, Tabas said he should not be held responsible for their growing debt.
“Barcelona is not considering bankruptcy,” he added.
“Their debt may be a little higher, but they paid off completely before Covid. But Covid has emerged and is generating a lot of income. They can’t pay off their debt, so their salaries should be reduced.
“This is a major factor for most clubs. It is not because they were not managed well before.”
