Even if Messi decided to play freely for Barca, they still will not be able to register him – Raj
A lot of people have come up with different analysis on why Lionel Messi was crying yesterday because of his love for Barcelona, when he knew that his wage was high even though he reduced it. Others too came up with opinions that if he truly loved the club as mentioned, he should have played freely for them and then get paid after one year when Barcelona may have recovered from their financial crisis.
Founder of premier league panel and also a writer for BBC sports Raj Chohan has come up with analysis on why Messi can’t still be allowed to play for Barca even if he decided to play for free. According to him, Barca’s wage to revenue ratio is currently around 115%.
Laliga’s salary cap is set at 70% and even without Messi’s wages, it’s still at 95% which therefore confirms the fact that they won’t still be able to register him, should he decide to play for free.
