Lionel Messi has revealed how he almost left Barcelona because of the investigation from the Spanish tax authorities.

Recall that he and his father were found guilty in a 4.1 million euros tax fraud between 2007 and 2009. In the process, he bagged a 21-months suspended prison sentence.

In a radio interview, Messi stated that the reason why he wanted to leave Barcelona was because he wanted to leave Spain.

According to him, the pressure was too much for his family, so he didn’t want to be in the country anymore.

When asked if he would extend his contract with Barcelona which ends in 2021, Messi said doing such would not be a problem.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
