Happy news for Barca Fans, in the extension contract Football fans, wanted some calm days after a frantic weekend that saw the European Super League established and then disbanded. However, there is likely more important — and unquestionably more exciting — news on the horizon for Barcelona.
The latest news will extend Lionel Messi’s deal with the Catalan club for another two years.
There has been a lot of speculation about the Argentine’s future since the ‘burofax debacle’ last summer. In the early stages of the season, he still seemed to be out of sorts. Messi himself admitted in an interview that the entire summer saga played a part in it. He did, however, claim that he has settled in with the new boss.
Since then, the six-time Ballon D’Or winner hasn’t looked back. Since the beginning of 2021, he has been on a tear. Athletico Bilbao was the next victim of his excellence, as the Blaugrana captain was instrumental in Barça’s 31st Copa Del Rey triumph. Furthermore, he seems to be in the right place at the right time, still elated and ready to give his everything.
According to Cuatro’s reports, he also showed him the first draught of the deal. The contract’s terms please the Barça forward. He knows that the club would not offer him the same astronomical deal that he had previously. The Joan Laporta board, on the other hand, has other ideas.
Happy news for Barca Fans They want Leo to retire from football at Camp Nou and then remain with the club as a club ambassador or institutional position. The club has made it clear that they want him to sign a long-term deal with them. Jorge Messi, the Argentine’s father, and the agent, has already arrived in Barcelona, but no contact has yet been made.
Messi has made it clear that he will not be a stumbling block for the new board. After lifting the Copa Del Rey trophy, he reportedly said to Laporta, “Presi, I go, or I stay, I’ll make it easy for you.” Nothing has materialized yet, but both parties have good intentions, and we are unlikely to see a repeat of last summer’s disaster.
