Real Madrid offered €250M for Barcelona star Messi

Real Madrid offered €250M for Barcelona star Messi

However, El Mundo report Real Madrid have attempted to sign Messi on three occasions - with a proposal from four-and-a-half years ago being the closest they came to talks.

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.

Nelson Van Denburg And Campbell Wealth Management Grp Inc Ltd Co stated it has 110 shares or 0% of all its holdings. Reinhart Partners Inc sold 57,003 shares as the company's stock declined 2.83% while stock markets rallied.

It is alleged that Real, who are believed to have made three other attempts to sign Messi during his lifetime, wanted to conduct a meeting on a private jet, in the air.

Messi was also under tax investigations at the time and it is claimed that Real Madrid would have put "pressure" on Spain Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy over investigations.

The report goes on to state that Bartomeu thinks Suarez's best days are behind him and that the 31-year-old could soon be moved on.

The group claimed that in June 2013, an email exchange between the player's lawyer Inigo Juarez and his father Jorge, explained that Real were prepared to shell out the 250 million euro release clause that Messi commanded.

The mind-boggling deal, revealed as part of "Football Leaks" was to offset an approach for the Argentine from great rivals Real Madrid.
