Ghana's No. 1

Brunati: I've heard Messi has told Laporta that he wants to stay at Barcelona

Published on: 27 November 2020

As the election furore heats up at Barcelona with club members set to appoint a replacement for Josep Maria Bartomeu, one of the hot topics is bound to be captain Lionel Messi and his uncertain future.

The latest speculation suggests that the Barcelona No.10 has been in touch with at least one of the candidates, former president Joan Laporta.

"I've heard that Messi has told Laporta that he wants to stay at the club," Argentine reporter Veronica Brunati told Radio MARCA's show Viernes con Ellas.

"This is the information that I have today, but things can change in the case of a week, I know that there's been contact with Laporta.

"Obviously Leo has to decide whether he wants to go into history as a player who has spent his whole career at a club or if he wants to go to another club, and in times of COVID, there aren't many clubs who can take on his wages, not even a PSG or Manchester City.

"I hope Leo stays at Barcelona, he's a fantastic player."

The show also discussed recent events such as the passing of Diego Maradona this week, which was also discussed by the three guests.

"For the generation who enjoyed his football in the 80s, he's left a mark, he's the last great idol we have left," said Arancha Rodriguez of Cadena COPE.

"There's one figure in world football which can be compared with Maradona and that's Pele," explained GOL journalist Cristina Cubero.

"He surpassed being a footballer after his death, Maradona's death has been good for his legend, thanks to death, Maradona has become even greater."

"Maradona has always been a legend, some people begin to understand now what Maradona means," Brunati added.
