Messi will dump Barcelona if I don’t become next president – Laporta


Barcelona presidential candidate, Joan Laporta, has claimed Lionel Messi will quit the club, if he doesn’t win the election this month.

Messi is into the final months of his contract at the Nou Camp sparking speculation over his future..

Laporta still believes that the 33-year-old can be convinced to extend his stay in Catalunya, but only if he beats Victor Font and Toni Freixa to become Barca president for the second time on March 8.

“I am sure that if someone else wins the election [other than me], Messi won’t stay at the club,” Laporta said in a debate between the three candidates.

“I have a good relationship with him, there’s a lot of respect. We’ll make him an offer based on the club’s situation.

“Maybe we can’t compete financially, but Messi is not ruled by money.

“He wants to end his career at the highest level possible.”
