"From an economic point of view, it would have been wise to sell Messi"
Carles Tusquets current president of the FC Barcelona controlling committee maintains that selling Messi would have helped the club's 'worrying' financial situation.
Head of the interim FC Barcelona managing committee Carles Tusquets conducted an interview with local Catalan network RAC 1 and was frank and forthright relating to the precarious financial situation at Barça.
The executive also offered his view on the recent rumours linking Brazilian star Neymar Jr with a Camp Nou return adding: "If Neymar comes on a free transfer, then it could be considered, if not, no, as there is no money to sign him. The only way around this would be the new president delivering some sort of miracle and subsequent getting approvals from the sporting directors.
