Messi preparing to sue El Mundo and Barcelona staff over contract leak

Posted by

Lionel Messi’s mouth-watering contract was leaked yesterday by Spanish publication El Mundo and the Argentine footballing legend is already preparing a lawsuit against the newspaper according to RAC1.

El Mundo published the contract last night and all of its’ possible variables which amounts to a staggering €555,237,619. According to El Mundo’s report over €511,540,545 has already been paid to Lionel as he nears the end of his current contract in Barcelona.

Messi is also preparing to investigate who at the club had access to his contract and who would be able to leak it as the contract itself had a confidentiality clause inside it.

The club has already come out and categorically denied Messi’s possibly claims that the leak came from inside the club and Barcelona will also be filing for legal action against El Mundo.

It is very suspicious for this document to be leaked at a time where Barcelona are in such a dire financial situation.

There are many possible people who could have leaked or El Mundo could have even possibly stolen the information.

What do you think happened?
