The club eventually signed Gareth Bale in a world record deal at the time thought to be in the region of £89million.

A Spanish news outlet is facing a backlash today after falsely claiming Lionel Messi tried to stop a cancer-stricken teammate sending videos to the Barcelona squad.

Their intention was to pay €23m net per year to Messi until 2021 and one million more to his father.

A meeting was also in place for Messi and his team to meet Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez and the then sports director, Miguel Pardeza.
