Laporta believes Messi is worth his money

Joan Laporta, who is seen as a favorite for the win in FC Barcelona’s upcoming presidential elections, has taken it on Monday for Lionel Messi. There has been a lot of commotion about the star player now that his sky-high salary has been leaked to the Spanish media.

Something which he hasn’t spent all on goldenrivieracasino.

Laporte does research

Earlier this week, Marca published that the club is 1.1 billion euros in the negative, of which 730 million euros must be paid in the short term. “He may have a decent salary, but his presence is more profitable for the club than it costs. We have researched this before,” said Laporta, who was the president of Barcelona between 2003 and 2010.
“Figures show that what we have done is financially responsible. A third of the income we generate is due to him. He is not only important in an economic sense, however, but also sporty and emotional. His value to Barcelona is unknown.”
