La Liga President unsure of Messi's stay at Barça


"I don't know," was all Javier Tebas had to say when asked whether he thought Leo Messi will still be playing for Barcelona when the new season kicks off on 15 August.

 LaLiga's president spoke to La Sexta's Jugones programme about the situation concerning the Argentinean, whose contract with Barcelona expired on 30 June although the club are hopeful he will agree to a new deal.

 Tebas was forthright about club staying within LaLiga's salary limit: "The rules are the rules and everyone has to comply with them, from Alcorcón to Barcelona".

He continued, "It's one thing to exceed the salary limit and another to renew a player's contract or bring in players under the one-for-four rule.

 For every four euros I save, I am able to spend one euro". With just 38 days until the 2021/22 season starts in Spain, Tebas was frank about the  possibility of Barcelona being able to register the Argentinean.

"If another player doesn't leave, it's impossible," Tebas responded when asked if Barcelona could register Messi in LaLiga without getting other players off the payroll.

The Catalan club has ready offloaded a number of players from the first team squad (Junior, Trincão, Konrad, Todibo...) but it seems that they will have to make further cuts if they are to lure their iconic No.10 back.

UCL Early Team News: Lucas Vazquez,Toni Kroos Others Absent for Liverpool clash

  Real Madrid are facing the trip to Liverpool without three important starters, Toni Kroos, Fede Valverde and Lucas Vazquez. Lucas had to be replaced before half time during the Clásico after he took a serious knock to his left knee, while both Kroos and Fede Valverde were also suffering from discomfort when they came off the field in the second half. Los Blancos have recorded important victories against Liverpool and Barcelona during a tough week that has taken its toll physically. “We are at the limit, I don't know how we are going to end up,” warned Zinedine Zidane after the Clásico. Following tests carried out by Madrid's medical team on Sunday, it was confirmed that Lucas has suffered a cruciate ligament sprain in his left knee. This type of injury usually requires around six weeks of recovery, meaning the Spanish midfielder will likely miss the rest of the season. Lucas's injury is fortunately not serious enough to require an operation. But since it is a spra

Pochettino Spotted at old trafford

By Adigun Olayemi Former Tottenham coach Mauricio  Pochettino has been tipped to take over the helm  of affairs at Manchester United. After a run of inconsistency, United coach Ole Solksjaer has been under scrutiny especially on his latest defeat in the champions league against Istanbul Basaksehir last night. Manchester United are currently 15th position in the English premier league table with  only one win. A run which had put the former Tottenham boss at the wheel, in delight of the club's faithfuls.
