Adult site offers to help with Lionel Messi contract saga
An adult website has offered to contribute $ 10m (Rand 143m) to help Barcelona fund a new contract for Lionel Messi.
The Argentina superstar is technically a free agent after his contract with Barca expired at the end of last month, and structuring a renewal for him seems to be a difficult task for the Blaugrana hierarchy.
Barcelona are embroiled in a financial crisis that has forced them to give up some of their stars in order to comply with La Liga salary regulations, and the salary cap issue is said to be the main bottleneck preventing Messi from signing a new deal .
Now it seems the most unlikely of saviors wants to come to their aid. Adult webcam company Stripchat is offering Barca a deal that will see them become a live streaming partner for the club in the coming season.
According to Star of the day, the company sent a letter of offer to Barcelona president Joan Laporta, which many say is nothing more than a marketing ploy.
