Barcelona Messing it up

Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Juventus have all made inquiries to Barcelona over playing sensation Lionel Messi. Apparently the club screwed up his contract which would see him able to leave the Catalan side for 250,000 pounds.

At 1.2 m pounds a year, and with a buyout clause in the neighborhood of 100m pounds until 2010, the terms can’t be activated while the youngster remains without a Spanish passport.

Even though Messi has commented that he’s going to be staying it didn’t stop some pretty heavy hitters from trying to make a deal. The only thing that could have stopped this from happening is the fact that Deco, Ronaldinho and Mark van Bommel sit in front of Messi in the line-up.

I’d be curious to know how much those clubs would be willing to pay Messi, 3, 3.5m maybe?

it's not Marc van Bommel in front of Messi, because he is Dutch, but Rafael Marquez from mexico.
