Joan Laporta: We will use all our skills to keep Messi but can’t match offers from other clubs

Presidential candidate Joan Laporta has announced that Barcelona will not attempt to match the offers that Lionel Messi could obtain from rival clubs.

If he left Barcelona, Lionel Messi could gain more, says Joan Laporta, the presidential candidate who is determined to retain the Argentinian.

Overseeing the early years of Messi’s career at Camp Nou, Laporta previously served as president from 2003 to 2010 and is now pursuing a further term at the helm.

Laporta says, other clubs may have more resources to lure Messi, but they do not have the kinship with the six-time winner of the Ballon d’Or that would make a split so hard to handle.

“We will use all our skills to keep Messi with us,” Laporta told Radio MARCA.

“Leo is not only focused on money. It will be a good economic proposal, but we will not reach what other clubs can offer.”

“I have a very good relationship with Leo. He wants Barcelona. I am convinced that he is looking forward to a proposal from the new president.”

“It is going to be based mainly on a competitive squad that can win the Champions League. If I make this proposal, I will fulfill it; I am lucky to have Leo’s credibility.”

“Now is not the time to talk about Messi, and for that, I have to be president.”
