Good afternoon Ed002; wishing you a good day. Please Ed when you have time can you help explain in details-

A) The reason why Messi and Barcelona could not reach an agreement.

B) What Laporta means by Barcelona not having enough salary margin from his words below.

"It's over, despite reaching an agreement with the player, the deal could not be formalised. We don't have enough salary margin and LaLiga is not flexible in terms of extending that limit. "

Ed, I know I could be asking much but please help your guy.

{Ed002's Note - (a) They did reach agreement but La Liga rules are clear and Barcelona need to make reductions in salary costs to meet the annual cap - and that means moving on high earning players. (b) He means that Barcelona are not able to spend huge amounts of money on wages and cannot sign him on the terms that were agreed. They are selling players to reduce wages. Other clubs have the same issue - Atletico for example.}

Ed002 if Messi signs for PSG I would not think he would take the pay cut he was going to at Barcelona. with the signings all ready made by PSG how would they stay in the FFP bracket. Is the french league not having big financial problems. If he does sign they must have the biggest wage bill of any team in world sport.

{Ed002's Note - The French League has suffered far worse than other leagues. PSG do not have an FFP issue and they have players moving on. They will be discussing his demands and putting some sort of deal on the table very soon.}

Barca wanted to pay 2 years salary across 5 years to meet league rules and La Liga said no.

La Liga have massively devalued their League.

La Liga is in decline and EPL looks so strong comparatively to rest of Europe. You can see why the ESL was so important.

Maybe I'm missing something.

Messi is crying in a press conference and it appears that this is bigger than football for him.

So why not just sign a considerably smaller contract.

Tom Brady did this for years to ensure that his team could invest elsewhere.

Not a criticism, it just seems like money shouldn't be an issue in this situation.

Maybe I'm missing the point, if the pooint is not his wages.

{Ed002's Note - It is a Barcelona wage issue, not just a Messi wage issue. This is why they need to move Griezmann on aswell.}

Good day Ed’s; please who is interested in Ismael Bennacer or does he still want to stay in Italy?

Goodevening Ed002;
Would Mateo Kovacic be a player that Real Madrid is looking to sell?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - Initially yes, and they still would be open to include him in a deal to assist in the capture of a high-end buy, but it looks less likely as time goes by. Whilst I suspect he won't be sold unless used as part of an exchange for a high-end player from elsewhere the clubs who have shown an interest (perhaps Spurs may be thinking about him) could yet creep above the parapet.}

Sometimes I think Inter Milan just buy players for the sake of buying not that they need them (players), quite funny what Christian Eriksen was thinking when he decided to join Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan, even a novice like me knows that Antonio Conte doesn’t fancy playing with his type of midfielder; besides, Inter have got Sensi and Barella who can play like Eriksen. A player like Eriksen doesn’t deserve to a back up, he should be starting.

Spurs and Manchester City are two clubs I think Chelsea can challenge for any player (at the moment) with, I see no reason why Chelsea shouldn’t be interested in Milan Skriniar too even though I know he won’t come cheap.
