Barcelona is pondering legal action over Lionel Messi’s contract leaks.

Lionel Mess

Following reports that Lionel Messi’s contract demands for 2020 were leaked, Barcelona is considering legal action.

Due to Barcelona’s financial difficulties, Messi left the club for PSG on a free transfer last summer. However, there had been rumours of his departure a year earlier as well because he and the club reportedly were unable to come to terms on a new contract for the Argentine.

Apparently, Messi requested special Camp Nou boxes for his and Luis Suarez’s families, the removal of a release clause, and a €10 million renewal incentive in his 2020 contract discussions, according to a leaked report from El Mundo on Wednesday.

Now that the leaks have been addressed, Barcelona is adamant about pursuing legal action since they are not at all happy that they were revealed.

“Barca expresses irritation at the intentional leakage of information that is part of a judicial process,” the La Liga team said in a statement in response to the information that was published in El Mundo under the heading “Barca Leaks, the club’s secret files.”

“The club regrets that the media in question brags of having ‘access to a huge quantity of papers and emails that are part of the Barcagate inquiry’ when this material is yet to be revealed,” the statement reads.

In any case, the publication of these non-relevant documents in the aforementioned article is an insult to the club’s good name and secrecy.

The club’s legal department is investigating the appropriate legal actions to be taken in order to safeguard Barcelona’s rights as a result.
