With the summer transfer window open, teams have started trading players, and talks of Neymar Jr leaving PSG are also doing the rounds. Although there are no talks of Lionel Messi moving out of Paris Saint-Germain, there is a piece of advice coming his way from Camp Nou. Messi’s former club, FC Barcelona’s owner Joan Laporta has sent a message to Messi as well as Neymar with things not going well for the two ex-Barca players.

In a recent interaction, Laporta spoke about the things going on in Paris. In the same light, he also talked about how the two current PSG players can make a comeback to Camp Nou. Laporta said that as the club can’t afford the transfer fee of these two, they should consider moving back on a free transfer.

“Should Neymar come for free? All these players [possibly] coming back to Barca one day should come for free. We are not in a position to make a purchase transaction which can cost a transfer [fee] for these players,” said Laporta.

These are the effects of a club having a state behind

Laporta also spoke about the Kylian Mbappe saga. He looked utterly disappointed at the way things panned out and blamed PSG for ‘kidnapping’ the striker. However, he had no sympathy for Real Madrid as well.

“This distorts the market. Players end up being kidnapped for money. These are the effects of a club having a state behind it. This goes against all the principles of the European Union,” said Laporta.

“It is a reflection on the sustainability of football in Europe. Then there is the reading that can be done from Barca.

“There is a direct rival who does not come out stronger and we prefer that they cannot make us squirm when it comes to competing. But I’m left with the reflection on the sustainability of football,” he added.

Notably, PSG and Real Madrid got involved in an ugly trade war for the most successful striker in the world at the moment.
