Lionel messi was the protagonist of one of the most shocking sports news throughout 2021: the Argentine left Barcelona, the club of his whole life. After an emotional farewell at the Camp Nou facilities, the forward joined the ranks of PSG, where he is on the road to adaptation to win trophies.
Beyond what currently lives in France, in the last hours I have made noise the presence of the crack in the club. Obviously, no longer on the court and scoring goals or raising glasses with the Barça shirt, but in the official store and generating significant income for the economy of the entity chaired by Joan Laporta.
There are three exclusive products, to say the least, that are directly related to Leo Messi. Not only that, each one, in addition to the symbolic, has very high prices. For example, from lowest to highest, the website features a captain’s armband with the signature of the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner in exchange for 643.50 euros ($ 718.41).
The main shirt for the 2020-21 season, also signed by the South American footballer, costs 1,170 euros (1,324.73 dollars) in the club store. This garment, for the most fans of Barça, has a very important value because it is the last one that the Argentine wore during his time at the Camp Nou.
Finally, Barcelona exploits the image of its legends with an elastic corresponding to the 2013-14 season. In this jacket appear the signatures of figures such as Messi, Andrés Iniesta and Xavi Hernández (current coach). The precious object for collectors and fans amounts to 2,950 euros (3,340.14 dollars).
The Catalans failed in the attempt to renew Lionel’s contract, but thanks to him – and his attractive image – they continue to pour money into the coffers with the aforementioned objects. And it is that the bond between Messi and Barcelona exceeds the economic, because the attacker marked an unforgettable time for the fans culés.
