The Catalan club is going to keep the key player at all costs.

According to AS, Barcelona will do everything possible to persuade Lionel Messi to stay in the team. The source reported that the Catalans intend to extend their contract with the Argentine forward this month.

Messi’s current contract is valid until June 30, 2021. But the forward may leave the team arbitrarily, even this summer.

However, everything goes so far that Messi will anyway extend the new contract. However, there is currently one disagreement between the parties.

Josep Bartholomew hopes to sign a permanent contract with Messi, and Leo prefers an annual renewal. Recently, the Argentinean relationship with the leadership has settled, so the club is confident of success.

 

“If he comes, I won’t leave” – Messi’s new request.

 

Barcelona’s Argentine mega-star Lionel Messi is unhappy with the current state of the club. This fact is not a novelty for anyone.

In his latest interviews, Leo has repeatedly confirmed that he wants to stay at Camp Nou. But for that, leadership must create a successful project.

Spanish publication Don Balon writes that La Pulga has submitted a new request to Barca. According to the source which we cannot rely upon without any doubt, the six-time Gold Ball owner wants to bring Matthijs de Ligt to Blaugrana.

Leo seems to think that the acquisition of the Dutch back from Turin’s Juventus will solve the long-term problems in Barca’s defense.

There are real problems in Barcelona’s defense. However, it is questionable whether the club will be able to find so much money for the transfer. They need 300m euros to buy Neymar and Lautaro Martinez in summer.
