Real Madrid offered €250M for Barcelona star Messi

Spanish media claims Lionel Messi tried to stop cancer-stricken teammate sending videos

Lionel Messi pockets in the region of €2m (£1.78m) a week with his astonishingly lucrative new contract at Barcelona, according to a new report by Football Leaks.

Josep Pedrerol and his programme, El Chiringuito de Jugones, are at the centre of the storm after sending a tweet to promote an interview with Eric Abidal, who was struck down with cancer while playing with Messi for Barcelona before making an incredible recovery.

The report claims that the Argentine is fighting the corner of his fellow South American, claiming that the former Liverpool star still has plenty to offer - a fact backed up by the striker scoring six times in his last five La Liga outings. It is claimed the Madrid giants were also willing to pay Messi a very handsome net salary of €23m per year on a lengthy eight-year contract to 2021.

Messi, in the white of Real Madrid, it doesn't bare thinking about does it? There is even a claim that Juarez told Messi's father and agent, Jorge, that Real would "pressure" Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy in the event that the player was open to tax fraud.

Colfax (CFX) Given News Sentiment Score of 0.07
After $0.42 actual EPS reported by Colfax Corporation for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 11.90% EPS growth. It worsened, as 39 investors sold HST shares while 143 reduced holdings. 47 funds opened positions while 161 raised stakes.

Obviously, it never went through but how different the past few years could have been if it did.

This was June 2013, not long before Los Blancos broke the world transfer record to sign Gareth Bale for €100m, with Real allegedly prepared to trigger Messi's buyout clause.

A potential move to Real Madrid for Neymar has been talked about for months now.

Messi ended growing speculation over his long-term future in November when he put pen to paper on a new deal that keeps him at the Camp Nou until 2021.
