20 years since Messi arrived in Barcelona

0

On September 17, 2000, a boy named Lionel Andrés Messi landed in Barcelona from Rosario with all his hopes set on becoming the global promise that everyone was already talking about.

Although at the beginning the negotiations seemed not to reach a good port, the insistence of two fundamental characters to write the story, Carles Rexach and Josep Maria Minguella allowed everything we already know to happen: the arrival of the best player in the club’s history and perhaps in the history of world football.

From that legendary signature on the napkin, to the Burofax episode, Messi’s 20 years at Barça have been the most important in the history of the Barça team.
