i. In an interview with the Super Deportivo Radio program of the Argentine radio station Radio Villa Trinidad, in which he charged very hard against Florentino Pérez and his failed European Super League project, the former leader was asked why he would have done to have Leo Messi at Real Madrid during his tenure. And his response was not wasted.

I would have done what they would have asked me to have Messi at Real Madrid. Had walked back and forth to Rome to ask the Pope to help me. I would have even done that so that Messi would have been with us … ”.

However, the former Merengue president knows that “it was something impossible, because he was already involved in Barcelona. That’s why i signed Christian
