Spanish giants FC Barcelona has admitted that any or all of its three star players could go, if they make up their mind to accept more lucrative offers elsewhere, especially now that they are putting up a stellar performance on the pitch.
Barcelona’s vice-president, Javier Faus, said on Friday that the club could lose Lionel Messi, Neymar or Luis Suarez to richer rivals such as Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in
Faus said they would be unable to prevent one of the star trio from departing if they wanted to agree to the bigger salaries on offer elsewhere.
He said: “We can no longer pay the most in terms of wages. That is now Chelsea and PSG. You have to understand that players always compare their net pay to those of the Premier League or the Bundesliga, who have pushed costs up dramatically.
“It will be a challenge but we want to avoid letting Messi, Neymar or Suarez go. But if a club has the potential to take them away because of their cheque book, then they will go. The players have a very short career and are entitled to charge what other clubs can pay for their services.”
