Barcelona Rejects Staggering €250m Move From Russian Club For Messi

MessiIn what could only signify his unalloyed commitment to the only professional club he has ever known, and a statement to all other clubs who would attempt to lure him away from the Camp Nou in the future, Barcelona talisman, Leo Messi, has reportedly turned down a mouth watering deal from an unnamed Russian club who were more than willing to trigger his €250 million release clause, in addition to paying the three-time Ballon d’Or winner a yearly salary of €30 million.

In an article by Barcelona-based sports daily, Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona and Messi both mutually agreed to reject the offer, despite the incredible sum of money it would have fetched the Catalan giants if they yielded.

Leo’s father, Jorge Messi, club president, Sandro Rosell and Leo himself, discussed and rejected the offer, with Leo citing two reasons; he is comfortable with his teammates and his goal is to win trophies, something that may not come as frequently with Messi as the star surrounded by a cast of players not as in-sync as he is with his teammates in Barcelona.

The second reason is due to the birth of his son, Thiago and his fiancee, Antonella, and his desire to remain in Barcelona and raise his family.
