Messi Signed Contract with Barcelona on a Napkin
Barcelona’s Technical Secretary of that time, Charly Rexach, was so afraid to lose the 13 years old Lionel Messi after he has seen Messi’s seven minutes of trial performance. He was so impressed that he wanted to sign him up fast.
At the moment, he only had a napkin to write on. Rexach’s urgency made him write the contract on the napkin itself ( Goalaso.tv ). Gaggioli still has it stored in a safe of the Credit Andorra bank.
A Girl Refused Messi
We all know that the only girl in Messi’s life is Antonela Roccuzzo. But there’s another girl in the story. Her name is Macarena Lemos, who is a model from Rosario. Well, we all know Leo’s love for Rosario girls. They were in a relationship when Macarena was 14 years old, and Messi was 18 years old.
The relationship was somewhere from 2005 to 2006. But the parents of Macarena initiated the break-up as her father thought that Leo was not good enough for her daughter as he was a from a low-income family.
