Quarantine in a mansion with a gym isn't like quarantining in your house. Also in most countries there are special rules for footballers. At least in the EU

The point isn't that they're in some **** situation, it's that a player signed today isn't starting a game on Sept 12.

Not sure if posted yet, but BBC going with Suarez having agreed with Juve for a minimal or no fee and it also implies that Barca may be some of his wages. I understand getting rid of Suarez but are they really that desperate?!

Messi and his dad put out a statement challenging the 700m release clause. Check your facts boys.

I really don't understand getting rid of Suarez. It's like they are solving the wrong problem. Who is going to be a better 9 than Suarez for Barca next season? Barca had the best offense in La Liga but only like the 5th best defense. They scored 2 goals against Bayern but conceded 8. That's not your CF's fault. Even if he's not at his absolute prime anymore he is still one of the best in the world in his position.

I love the story that Suarez contacted Chiellini to make sure that they were cool after Suarez bit him.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

What a weird series of events this am. Basically Messi says this clause isn’t valid guys it expires. Then idiot tebas just comes out says no it’s valid. Now reports are saying he’s gonna stay. Lol. None of it makes sense.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Seems the only option is to take it to court which it seems it would be ruled as it being not valid unless he doesn’t want to do that. Tebas is so insanely dumb. Weird that la liga sends out the statement which is a stupid one then every major media outlet all claim he’s staying as a result. Truly bizarre stuff

Havertz transfer is imminent, alleged price of 80M including add ons. Marina masterclass.

Bartomeu doesn't care about the team's problems. He has two transfer windows to get rid of Barcelona's debt so that he won't have to pay anything.

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Most likely nobody wants to risk getting Messi for free and then battling it out in court and now Messi is like: "Trust me, I don't have a release clause, this fool Tebas got it all wrong. I can go for free, but I won't because I love the club, forgive me for putting you through this."

Yeah seems to be the most logical thing. What a shitshow though. Barto and tebas in an arms race to see who can be the bigger dumbass.

Apparently he’s going to announce he’s staying in 15 mins

Re: Eueopean and English football summer transfer thread 2020

Messi is staying at Barca to avoid legal repercussions and lashes out at Barto and the administration.

What a joke. Holding the greatest player in history and the biggest club legend of all against his will, my god. Barcelona's reputation will quite literally never recover from this.
