An adult website has offered to contribute $ 10 million (Rand 143 million) to help Barcelona fund a new contract for Lionel Messi.
The Argentine superstar is technically a free agent after his Barca contract expired late last month and structuring an extension for him seems to be proving to be a difficult task for the Blaugrana hierarchy.
Barcelona are embroiled in a financial crisis that has forced them to let go of some of their stars to comply with LaLiga wage regulations and the salary cap issue is reportedly the biggest bottleneck preventing Messi from signing a new deal.
Now it seems that the most unlikely savior wants to come to their aid. Adult webcam company Stripchat is offering Barca a deal that will make them a live streaming partner of the club in the coming season.
According to the Day star, the company has sent Barcelona President Joan Laporta a letter of offer that many claim is nothing more than a marketing ploy.

“As an avid soccer fan, I am aware that FC Barcelona is working to find funding to get a new deal on the face of their Lionel Messi franchise,” writes Max Bennett, Vice President of New Media.
“It would be a shame if Leo, who has been a Barcelona player for 20 years, left. “To fund his contract, I wanted to offer $ 10 million to become Barca’s live streaming partner for the coming season.
“At Stripchat, we specialize in delivering high quality adult live streams to 420 million fans around the world every month. Using our technology and network, we could bring a different kind of pleasure by streaming football and Messi live to the world! “
Barcelona have yet to announce a new contract for Messi, which means he is currently free agent until further notice.
