In the past two weeks, Bartomeu was destined to be the chairman of the world’s most distressed football club, and no matter he had just tried his best to get the transfer of Atul Pjanic with Juventus, he was stuck in the line and saved himself. Throne of the chairman.
Then came the team's distressing record after the La Liga rematch. As the leader of the management of the club, it is reasonable to be the target of the media.
However, this is not the whole story. The more troublesome you are, the more troublesome things will hit your face one after another: Messi will not renew!
In just six words, the football circle directly exploded. The last time Messi’s staying and leaving problems caused such a big sensation seems to have been five and a half years ago. At that time, the parties involved had been asking him for a long time. The virtuous Chelsea, but now, it seems that only Messi and Barcelona's internal PK are left.
Regarding this wave of contract renewal negotiations between Messi and Barcelona, the Italian name Schiira was one of the first to release the wind. As early as March 9 this year, he broke the news that Barcelona hoped to renew the contract with Messi until 2023. (The current contract expires in the summer of 2021) reached an agreement.
Messi still had the right to freely leave the team by notifying Barcelona before June, but he did not choose to enforce this clause.
However, based on the wind direction of the past few days, Ming Kee also stumbled. The negotiation not only failed to be negotiated as quickly as Schila claimed, but also fell into an extremely unfavorable situation.
Regarding this point, Alfredo Martinez, the Spanish Horizon Radio Barcelona veteran team reporter, seems to be more admissible: on June 6, he bluntly said that this negotiation is only Barcelona and Bartomeu. Anxious to keep Messi's wishful thinking, Messi did not make much expression.
After learning about the news, Barcelona was stunned: we had to rely on third-party media instead of learning about each other's ideas from Messi.
And this is not the first time. In the public relations incident a few months ago, the Barcelona management only learned that the incident had become almost impossible to end after the media published their name in the newspaper.
Regardless of how some of Barcelona’s management personnel and the locker room players have fought in the past year, at least in the face of the top priority of retaining Messi, they are willing to act as the licking dog of the goddess. No one can imagine it. What will Messi’s Barcelona look like;
Messi’s fluctuating cold and hot, and even indifferent attitude from time to time, is also reflected from the side. As a player, and even a "totem" that has surpassed the identity of a player to some extent, he may be the Barcelona team since its establishment. The most special one.
La Liga has gone through 90 years, and there is no doubt that Real Madrid and Barcelona are the top two standing strong. They used to deal with the meritorious players in the team.
Messi’s refusal to renew this contract is easily reminiscent of Ronaldo who ran away from the Bernabeu two years ago. Both are 33-year-old late in his career, and are both the Golden Globe winners of the previous year and are still the best of the times. C Luo Shou, holding his warm third consecutive Champions League trophy, could not be exchanged for a satisfactory long contract.
Cristiano Ronaldo's dissatisfaction is not without reason. 2016-18 can be said to be the three years when Cristiano Ronaldo changed his life in the first year of his life. The double harvest of the club and the national team completely shattered the doubts of the outside world. However, as the first and most competitive candidate in football at that time, he has never been able to get a high salary that matches his status.
克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多（Cristiano Ronaldo）的不满并非没有道理。可以说2016-18年是克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多（Cristiano Ronaldo）人生第一年改变人生的三年。俱乐部和国家队的双重收获完全打消了外界的疑虑。但是，作为当时足球界第一位也是最具竞争力的候选人，他从未能够获得与其职位相称的高薪。
If it is still understandable that it is significantly lower than Messi, he is somewhat unwilling to be left behind by Neymar who joined Paris.
At the same time, his repeated entanglement by the Spanish financial department on tax issues also gave him a headache. On the premise that Florentino was still unable to give him the expected salary increase, the two sides broke up in a more peaceful way.
Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, which is able to give him a high salary under the tax system. Even so, his annual salary is still behind Neymar's "worthy" third in the world, but it has reached at least 30 million euros.
From Hierro at the beginning of the new century, to Raul and Cassie in the middle, and even Ronaldo two years ago, the attitude of Real Madrid fans towards the club is naturally well-known: the club recognizes the contributions of players, but only for any senior players. Will weigh its future value from objective needs.
At the same time, the club will not make things difficult for players to find new homes. Apart from a peaceful breakup, if a player wishes to return to Real Madrid after retirement, he welcomes it with both hands, just as Raul is now in Castilla, C Although Luo has not retired, he has come to Madrid to watch the match this year.
Florentino is not the pioneer of this practice of Real Madrid. As early as when Bernabeu was in charge of Real Madrid, he set the perfect example for the subsequent presidents-even Di Stefano is hardly immune.
The 1964 Champions League final was the 38-year-old he played for Real Madrid's last game. During this period, he had a quarrel with the coach Munoz (left and right in the picture above, this picture is the reunion after more than ten years). Both parties asked each other to shut up. However, according to Stefano's afterthought, it was only then that he realized that the team's attitude towards him had quietly changed.
Before the game, in order to motivate the players, the chairman Bernabeu was still shouting "Veterans are not dead", but after the game it turned 180 degrees: "If you want to be a star player, you have to know what to do to be a star. Player. It’s not enough to say “I am the best” in the mouth."
In the next game, Real Madrid faced Atletico Madrid, but Di Stefano was excluded for the first time after joining Real Madrid. When he questioned Munoz, the latter's reply was simple and straightforward: "I don't need to give you any explanation."
Munoz won support from the Bernabéu, and Stefano, who insisted that he could still play, rejected the club's contract to convert him to a non-player staff and resolutely joined the Spaniard.
Afterwards, the relationship between Real Madrid and Stefano was not completely broken. A few years later, "Golden Arrow" returned to serve as the head coach and became the club's lifetime honorary chairman. The past grievances will not Affect the recognition of their achievements from the whole club.
This is true for Real Madrid, and the same is true for Barcelona. The 20th century Barcelona is not as dazzling as Real Madrid. Looking at the century-old team history at that time, if you want to introduce players that can represent Barcelona football in the 20th century, based on past media selections and various authoritative readings, the first choice is Kubala and Two of Cruyff.
Cruyff has only played for Barcelona for 5 years, and he won only a La Liga and a Copa del Rey, as well as a 5-0 home game of the century derby that can be used as a talk. But even such a "plain" resume has won the supreme position in the hearts of fans.
In 1978, Cruyff planned to retire early, when Nunez became the chairman of Barcelona and the Spanish tax law changed two major events. The responsibility for paying taxes falls on the individual players from the club. With the exception of Cruyff, who indicated that he will retire and leave the team, Barcelona has carried this burden on all the other players, which caused Cruyff to lose nearly 6 million. A huge amount of dollars.
Of course, as we all know, Cruyff returned to Barcelona in the future, created a dynasty of dreams and carried forward his ideas.
Although the encounter between Di Stefano and Cruyff is a unique case, it is an extremely special case with an extraordinary status in the club and a great influence on future generations.
When their views and behaviors conflict with the club’s interests, both Real Madrid and Barcelona adopted similar practices: We respect your contribution, but we must break up at this moment, please find another place; hereafter You will also be welcomed, just as both became the coach and honorary chairman of the team afterwards.
Therefore, according to the previous practice of Hanza’s treatment of similar incidents, Ronaldo’s departure is not difficult to understand. He is an emperor's dream. He brought the Bernabeu a peak in team history second only to the ancient five consecutive championships, but the relationship between them still remains on the court.
When Cristiano Ronaldo became famous at Manchester United, he hoped to embark on another dream-seeking journey; when Florentino and Real Madrid needed a competitive soaring to get out of the trough 11 years ago, the two came together in a snap.
克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多（Cristiano Ronaldo）在曼联（Manchester United）出名时，他希望踏上另一场寻梦之旅； 11年前弗洛伦蒂诺和皇马需要竞争飞涨才能走出低谷时，两者很快就走到了一起。
During the three years when the Silver Legion stood on the top of Europe, Real Madrid’s strategy has undergone a significant change compared to the past. Being a superstar is no longer the focus of pursuit, but for the future long-term operation under the framework of preserving the success. paving.
Although there was a miss during the period, for example, the local young accounts accumulated in the past two years were almost wiped out, but at least the team has made it clear that it will not place heavy bets on the aging Ronaldo, even if his remaining power is still there.
This strategy allowed Real Madrid to experience a 2018-19 season in which there was no leader and the four were empty. Perhaps at the moment Ronaldo announced his departure from the team, someone foresaw this result. After all, the changes of the times are always mixed with blood and tears. But from the current trend, although the overall lineup of the blood replacement plan is only more than half carried out, the complete change of the dynasty still requires the patience of the fans, but the phased results have already appeared.
In comparison, Messi is too "special". Messi has spent twenty years here since he first set foot on this land as a youth player in 2000.
He grew up here, shined here, and stood on the throne with the whole team here, wearing only a red and blue jersey. Nowadays, Barcelona is still occupying important positions, whether it is players, coaches or staff, who are more experienced than Messi.
Moreover, Barcelona in the 21st century and Barcelona in the 20th century are two teams with completely different status in football, so that the number of Barcelona’s top ten teams. Although the answers are different, most of them must be directly caused by those who dream of two dreams. The composition of the participants.
Messi himself is not only the witness of these two peaks, but also one of the most important founders of the glorious record in the next 15 years. The history of the team controlled by Messi is countless.
If in the eyes of the fans, Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid are a perfect mutual achievement and win-win together, then in recent years, Messi and Barcelona have faintly skewed each other's status in the hearts of fans. The voice of "West created the Barcelona dynasty" has become the mainstream in the market.
Demonstrating the correctness of this point of view does not necessarily have much meaning. In short, Barcelona did fall into a disadvantage in this behind-the-scenes PK. They used their actions to prove that Messi was on the land of Catalonia. How is it different from others.
This is not the first time that under Bartomeu’s rule, or will leave Barcelona, it is not unfounded.
Recently Setien’s remarks put the “hierarchy” in the Barcelona locker room on the table, which has affected the operation of the team. This unspoken rumor for many years, including Bartomeu and Abidal The internal management and the dressing room headed by Messi and Pique have also repeatedly fought back and forth, hoping to regain the initiative, but they can't take advantage.
When Messi expressed doubts and dissatisfaction several times in public, some of Barcelona's management staff could only give in three points, and obediently sent the renewal contract to the other party for signature. However, Messi is still unwilling to be the target of all spearheads after all. This time through a third party to signal to the outside world that the contract will not be renewed, he has revealed to some extent that he does not want to be involved in these wrongs again.
On the topic of whether Messi renews or not, another major focus of attention is nothing more than financial pressure. Barcelona’s several transfers that were deemed to have lost their grandmother’s house in recent years are indeed suspected of Barcelona’s sudden illness, but on the other hand, it is also caused by many external pressures. Messi is even less likely to bear these. The culpability of the failed transfer.
However, the renewal of the super high salary will inevitably increase the pressure in the future. Therefore, we will see that Barcelona has recently launched various member-paid "services" and sold the Nou Camp naming rights in the next few years (the first year will be charitable, but after Is still a typical business behavior), Sima Zhao’s heart is known to everyone, and it will be the same in the future.
Barcelona and Juventus together support the top two players in today's football, and this tumultuous exchange of flat accounts also happened between the two teams, obviously not a coincidence. Rumor has it that Artur and Pjanic will be the first Brazilians and Bosniacs to be teammates with Melo, respectively. There is a sense of joking in the conversation, but they also reflect the side of today's football. The operating ability of the Chinese team has a non-negligible impact on the club's performance.
Bartomeu has naturally beaten countless small calculations in his heart, but at this moment he still has to do his best to keep Messi, no one can afford to let Messi leave the team during his tenure, even if it is overdrafted in the future. Do not hesitate.
However, the chairman, who is destined to appear in Barcelona's history in some form in the future, has inevitably become the target of public criticism with Setien-even if Messi renews his contract. Harvey has revealed that he may not consider taking over as a coach because of the chairman's problem, while Griezmann said that the current coach will shake his determination to stay in Barcelona.
What happens once Messi is sent away? In recent years, Barcelona has been on the top of the global club revenue list more than once, but at the same time debt pressure has also approached its limit. No one can tell how much help Messi has contributed to the world's highest revenue. Similarly, even if Messi leaves the team to make room for huge salary, can Barcelona's finances be immediately turned around?
Liverpool ushered in Fenway after sending away the dog-blood duo. After ten years of sharpening the sword, starting with the entire employee system, and then optimizing the signing department and technical team, it took a long period of time to achieve the Champions League and the Premier League. The aspiration of the company, with the smallest price in exchange for the results that are now worthy of pride.
But Fenway's success does not mean that it can directly substitute the plan into the status quo of Barcelona. The dilemmas faced by the two are completely different, and even Fenway has experienced a period of trial and error after taking over Liverpool.
From the author's point of view, although this has been regarded as the most difficult time to fill the gap between Messi and Barcelona, in the end, if Messi really leaves the team, the probability should still be less than staying at Catalonia. In the next two years, whether it is the potential for veterans to leave the team for replacement, or the next year’s presidential election for a new head, Barcelona may be the last opportunity for change that cannot be squandered.
