La Liga president Javier Tebas wants big names in European football at Spain’s top division. Tebas also mentioned top-three Premier League managers he would like to attack to La Liga in the future.
Tebas has also stated to bring superstar Cristiano Ronaldo back to La Liga. Five times Ballo d’Or winner left Real Madrid in 2018 for Juventus. He has been in great form at Serie also, not ready to give up on being top in the world.
La Liga chief also mentioned his desire to keep Lionel Messi in Spain. Barcelona legend has been linked with an away move since the last summer. Messi’s contract with Catalan giants expires in the summer, June 2021. He is yet to sign a contract extension with Barcelona and hasn’t made any statement about his future yet.
Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester City are keeping tabs on the Messi saga. Chelsea recently linked with Messi and interested to sign him as a free agent if gets a chance.
La Liga has been one of the best leagues in world football with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid leading charge. Both teams have plenty of star names to show off but other teams lack big names.
English Premier League is a little ahead to attract big names, both players and managers. English top division is also way ahead of every other league in the world in terms of money involved.
But Tebas also suggested that having a big name in the league is not essential. He stated this over Neymar’s departure from La Liga in 2017 for a world-record fee.
“We always want the best,”
“I want [Lionel] Messi in La Liga. Just as I want Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Cristiano [ Ronaldo ]… all of those would help us grow.”
