Real Madrid are willing to help Barcelona out so they manage to tie Leo Messi down to a new deal, the reliable Onda Cero claim. The Catalans are currently unable to register him as they are exceeding the salary limit imposed by La Liga.
The Whites reckon that Messi staying in La Liga is essential for the marketing potential and value of the league, it’s reported. The Argentine could drive additional income to all parties involved, which would be critical to clubs like Real Madrid, as they have been affected by the pandemic.
Thus, Onda Cero say that Madrid want to ask La Liga whether there is any ‘flexibility’ about the regulations which are currently impending his registration.
La Liga are set to discuss a new broadcasting deal with the sponsors and want to have the agreement settled by September. Javier Tebas, the league’s president, understands that La Liga with and without Leo is completely different in terms of income.
For now, the league reportedly wants everything to be solved in accordance with the existing rules. But it’s not excluded that Barca are granted more leeway eventually so they are able to keep the 34-year-old.
