Javier Tebas has said Barcelona could have kept Lionel Messi if they had not signed Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero.

Barcelona could not afford to renew Messi's contract and he then signed with Paris Saint-Germain.

Joan Laporta confirmed in August the club could have kept Messi if they had agreed to LaLiga's deal to sell 10% of its business to CVC Capital Partners.
