Yep, it was over months and months ago. No way was this ever going to work. They've tried to force La Liga's hand and failed (so far). So Laporta looks like he tried and Messi looks like he cares and now can go off and earn £1m a week without his brand being tarnished. Funniest thing to come out of today is that Aguero is supposedly out til November with an 'injury'.
