Barcelona are still paying Lionel Messi more than two years after he left the club and will continue doing so until at least 2025.
This was confirmed by the president of the LaLiga giants, Joan Laporta.
Laporta claims the club are still contracted to pay money to Messi for another two years.
In an interview with Cadena SER, Laporta was asked if Barca still owed money to the player and he replied that
“everything is agreed with him”.
“[Do] we owe any money to Messi? The only thing we owe are the salary deferrals that were agreed with the previous board of the club.
“This is producing pending payments that will come to an end in 2025. We are paying everything religiously,” Laporta said.
