There seem to be some light at the end of the tunnel regarding Barcelona’s quest to get superstar, Lionel Messi to renew his contract.
The Argentine’s contract at Barca will elapse on June 1, 2021 making him a free agent but the mercurial Messi had been reluctant to put pen to paper despite pressures from the top Spanish club.
All of that may now be in the past as the the diminutive striker has been reported to have handed the management a list of things to be sorted out before he will renew his Barca contract.
It is gathered that no club has contacted Messi concerning his contract situation. But looking at the Barca captain’s countenance, he is looking more settled and happier. This is an indication that there are possibilities that he might renew his current deal, something which nobody could have predicted after the burofax scandal.
According to The Nation, Leo’s major concern during the Bartomeu reign was the lack of a plan. So, this time around, he wants a reassurance from Joan Laporta that he is going to build a squad that can win it all.
He understands the precarious financial situation at the club but insists on at least one major signing.
