It looks like Messi will be a central character in the upcoming Barcelona elections, as his name appears in almost everything the candidates gather since the last board resigned.

With Leo, Freixa will speak calmly and face to face

Barcelona presidency candidate Toni Freixa has stressed on Friday that the contract extension the next board should offer to the Barcelona captain Lionel Messi cannot be the same as his current deal. It looks like Messi will be a central character in the upcoming Barcelona elections, as his name appears in almost everything the candidates gather since the last board resigned. “With Leo, we will speak calmly, face to face with the best Barcelona on the horizon,” Freixa told reporters. “To him, as for all the players who have to renew or sign, we will make an offer that will certainly not be feasible to meet the conditions he has had so far.

Lionel Messi still has a lot of football to play

“Obviously, and the members cannot be deceived, that the proposal that will be presented to him will not be the same as the one he has had until now, because revenues have dropped significantly and a different formula will have to be found. You don’t need to defeat Messi or convince him of other things. You have to look him in the eye and talk to him to find out what each party wants. What does he want and what does Barcelona want. We think Messi still has a lot of football to play”. Despite Barcelona’s financial woes following the coronavirus outbreak, Freixa is confident the club will bounce back but does not believe they can spend big for the time being.

“There is no apocalypse on the horizon that some have talked about, and the world does not end,” added Freixa. “Barcelona have 121 years of history and experience. We will move forward. However, if the signatures that other candidates promise to come with Barcelona money, I don’t see it so clearly. It would be a different matter if they paid out of their own pockets.”
