ButBarcelona not willing to negotiate Lionel Messi’s departure before his contract expires in 2021
Barcelona is not willing to give up on the player, especially not for free. Messi’s contract, which ends in June 2021, has a buyout clause of 700 million euros ($830 million). He has been with the club for nearly two decades, leading it to more than three-dozen titles and holding most of its individual records.
Cristanio Ronaldo Vs Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo’s release clause on his contract withReal Madridhas been decreased to €120 million, according to a report from Eduardo Inda on La Sexta’s El Chiringuito de Jugones. Los Blancos accepted to lower this clause from €1000 million to just €120 million after the talks to extend Ronaldo’s contract with Real Madrid stalled.
“It’s all very confusing. He wants to leave but at the same time he wants to be stopped. Anyway, Real Madrid are happy to let him go, but they want him to say publicly that he’s leaving, so the finger of blame goes to him and they can give him a spectacular send-off.”
