Xavi and Laporta’s heated dispute over Messi causes controversy in Barcelona

    A dispute arose between Barcelona coach Javi Hernandez and club president Juan Laporta over the Spanish coach’s desire to include Argentine star Lionel Messi in the team.

    Xavi Hernandez wants to strengthen the ranks of the Catalan club before next season to compete for many titles, the main one being the Champions League.

    Barça are suffering from financial fair play restrictions imposed by the Spanish League, which prevented the team from making new deals at the Mercato last winter.

    Strong disagreement in Barcelona between Xavi and Laporta because of colleague Messi!

    The Spanish newspaper Sport has indicated that Xavi wants to include Argentine star Fuita, a Villarreal player and colleague Messi, in the Argentina national team in order to strengthen the team’s ranks.

    The source stressed that Xavi asked the management to make an effort to sign Foyt next season.

    The same source confirmed that Barcelona’s technical staff believes the Argentine star will be a strong addition to the right-back position and help him compete seriously in such an important competition as the Champions League.

    Despite this, the source indicated that Barça’s administration, led by Juan Laporta, believes it is very difficult to secure a contract with Foyt, as Villaria does not want to negotiate or include any of the players in the deal.


    This is due to the fact that Villarreal are asking for 60 million euros for terminating the contract with the player, which the administration of Barca cannot take on.
