The leak of Lionel Messi’s contract is ‘a really serious problem’ about which he has nothing to do, claims Josep Maria Bartomeu claims.
Disclosing the contract specifics of Lionel Messi has been denied by former Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and insists the captain of Argentina deserves his eye-watering pay.
He told Esport3: “It’s a very serious issue and it’s totally illegal to leak professional contracts.”
“Speaking on TV and making accusations is easy, but it’s not a joke and this will end up in court.”
Bartomeu added: “By the way, Leo deserves what he earns. Both for professional and commercial reasons. Without the pandemic, Barcelona could easily pay those figures.”
