Real in £120m Messi bid

Post by Ward9310 » 08 May 2010, 11:25

Must be a slow day at the press, you really couldn't make this stuff up:
Real Madrid planning record-breaking £120m bid for Lionel Messi - World Exclusive

Real Madrid are planning another record breaking transfer deal this summer with a £120million offer for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

It is a deal which is designed to send shock waves through world football as Real Madrid plan to upset their fiercest rivals by going for their best player.

Real Madrid paid a world record £80m to Manchester United last summer for Cristiano Ronaldo but have struggled to topple Barcelona in La Liga.

The original plan was to make the £120million offer - which is the buy-out figure written into Messi's contract - during the week of the Champions League final to detract from Barcelona playing in the Bernabeu.

But Barcelona's semi final exit has now meant they will not have to do it in that timescale but president Florentino Perez still intends to make a shock offer to show that Real Madrid mean business again this summer.

Last summer, Real Madrid spent in excess of £220million on Ronaldo, Kaka, Xabi Alonso, Karim Benzema, Alvaro Arbeloa and Raul Albiol.

But it has failed to deliver the Champions League to Real Madrid and now they plan to steal Barcelona's thunder by making a bid for Messi.

Real Madrid do not expect that Barcelona will agree to the sale and the bid will ultimately fail but it shows that they can still outgun when it comes to spending power.

What don't they publish in England? pfffff :lol:

His buy out Clause was 100 million Euros, until September 09, when he renewed his contract till 2016, and elevated the clause to 250 million Euros..

Even if Madrid had the money Lio would never play for them.

FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACTTTTTTTT

I never thought you would be one to try and quote a Newspaper like the Mirror Newborn.

I thought it was 250 million, thanks
Panch.

I don't think Messi will ever play for Real.

Personally, I don't think he'll ever leave Barca.

It's just a ploy to show they mean business in the transfer market. They know Messi & Barcelona will turn it down, but it'll be on everyone's radar because they've pursued the No. 1 in the world. I think it would take a strong-willed player to transfer into Real Madrid right now....too many chiefs and not enough indians.
