The President of La Liga Javier Tebas believes that the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo from real Madrid to Juventus was not a problem for the championship of Spain:
“The departure of Cristiano, even if he upset real Madrid, gave us almost zero impact, because La Liga were preparing for years to ensure that its brand was higher than specific players.
But Messi is a different story. He’s the best player in the history of football. We are fortunate that he acted only in our League. I think leaving Messi would be noticeable. Especially in the case of a transfer to another championship.
Lionel – the icon of Spanish football, La Liga, and I’d ask him to finish his career in our League.
Messi care will be a disaster because we will sign television contracts with Messi or without. But the main thing – the value that he gives to the League. Messi always pleases us.”
