FC Barcelona president, Joan Laportahas placed blame onLaLiga President, Javier Tebas for Leo Messi's departure, citing the league’s economic controls as the reason, but it seems to me that he has fallen short. In his own presentation last Friday, when he clearly referenced the economic situation, we were made to understand that Tebas could no longer turn a blind eye. I say continue because I fear that for Barça to come to this, pandemic aside – there has been a pandemic for everyone – at some point LaLiga had to bite it’s tongue. Yet as we now know, after a summer without big sales or pay cuts, signing Messi was impossible. We will now wait to see if it is possible to register the four newcomers.
