We have learned that Lionel Messi’s Barcelona contract officially expired on July 1, making the superstar a free agent at the moment.
However, the Catalans are poised to renew their talisman’s contract but have to slash their overall wage bill in order to do it – that’s why they have reportedly offered to terminate Miralem Pjanic’s and Samuel Umtiti‘s contracts.
To this effect, a Chelsea fan thinks the Blues should put FC Barcelona in even worse jeopardy by hijacking their negotiations with Lionel Messi once they reopen contract talks with their captain possibly when he returns from Copa America.
Meanwhile, ‘2009’ stands for the notorious Champions League semi-final game in which Barcelona drew with Chelsea thanks to an absolutely shameful refereeing performance.
In the end, the Catalans progressed to the final as the Blues saw four penalty claims waved away by the referee, whom Didier Drogba called a ‘f***ing disgrace’.
If Chelsea could hijack Lionel Messi’s Barcelona contract, most Blues fans would be absolutely happy at least for revenge is the shameful robbery of the 2009 game.
