Football Leaks: Real Madrid Tried to Sign Lionel Messi in 2013 For a Quarter Billion

In 2013, earlier than Real Madrid paid a world-record price for Gareth Bale, Los Blancos had one other goal: Lionel Messi.

In a sensational report revealed in Der Spiegel, primarily based on paperwork from Football Leaks, Real Madrid had been ready to activate Messi’s €250 million buyout clause and to supply Messi €23 million per 12 months till 2021, and to present his father, Jorge Messi, an extra €1m.

Madrid transmitted the supply to Messi by way of the athlete’s lawyer, Iñígo Juárez, who relayed the data to the Argentine and his father.

Real Madrid deliberate to take the Barcelona star on a personal jet to have a gathering between the athlete, Juárez, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, their sporting Director Miguel Pardeza, and a Real Madrid lawyer.

Additionally, the report says that Madrid promised Juárez they’d strain Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy to drop a tax evasion investigation towards Messi if he joined them.

The football club has known as the report “totally false.” Of course, Messi didn’t be a part of Real Madrid in any case.
