Real Madrid planned Lionel Messi meeting in PRIVATE JET to discuss €250m Barcelona move

REAL MADRID have hit back at media reports they planned a €250million bid to sign Lionel Messi from Barcelona.
German outlet Spiegel and Spanish newspaper El Mundo quote the EIC network as claiming Real considered a €250m deal for Messi in 2013.

That would have triggered his release clause.

Inigo Juarez, then a lawyer to the Messi family, supposedly informed the player’s father Jorge of Madrid’s interest.

It is claimed Real would have been willing to pay Messi €23m a year until 2021, with €1m going to his father.

But Real have hit back in a statement today.

"This information doesn't conform in any way to reality, it is totally false," they said.

According to the two reports, Real made their interest known through the intermediary just weeks before they signed Gareth Bale from Tottenham.

Bale became the world’s most expensive player when he left White Hart Lane for the Bernabeu in an £85m deal.

Spiegel and El Mundo claim a meeting in a private jet between representatives from Real and Messi was scheduled and that president Florentino Perez was to be present.

El Mundo claim Real have actively pursued Messi three times during his career - the most recent of which was last year.
