Lionel Messi And Cesc Fabregas Buy Shares In Gerard Pique's FC Andorra
Gerard Pique's FC Andorra now have not one but TWO big shareholders in Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas.
Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi and ex-Arsenal and Chelsea midfield Cesc Fabregas, whose recently signed for AS Monaco, have both purchased shares in FC Andorra following Gerard Pique's takeover of the club.
Pique only bought the team last week, but he's already secured two big names as shareholders.
His company Kosmos took full responsibility of the club's debt after FC Andorra's executives sanctioned the move at a board meeting.

It's not just the board which has a heavy Barcelona presence.
The Spanish outfit is managed by ex-Blaugrana players Gabri Garcia and Albert Jorquera. They also boast Adria Vilanova, who's the son of late-Tito Vilanova.
Pique's company, Kosmos, have also made business droves in other sports like tennis, as well as esports, video games, eyeglasses not to mention isotonic drinks and organic hamburgers.
Wow. I'm honoured to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic Club. @as_monaco will be my home for the next 3.5 years and I cannot wait to start this new challenge. #daghemunegu #NowItsTime pic.twitter.com/t2rB4Vqklh- Cesc Fàbregas Soler (@cesc4official) January 11, 2019
An interesting side project for all men involved. Pique and Messi are, of course, teammates at Barcelona with the defender also enjoying a spell with Fabregas at the Camp Nou, as well as for Spain.
