Leo’s Future: Barcelona Did not Offer Messi a Renewal Offer
Barcelona did not offer Messi a renewal offer. Reports reveal his future.
There has been a lot of news about the Catalan club’s negotiations to renew the Argentinian’s contract.
Messi’s contract expires at the end of June. So far, the 34-year-old has not decided his fate, whether to renew or go on to a new professional experience.
Barcelona captain has arrived in Argentina to join the camp of his country’s national team.
La Albiceleste is setting up their current camp in Ezeiza, which Messi has reached alongside a number of players.
The arrival of the professional players began last Sunday, starting with Lautaro Martinez and Nicolas Dominguez.
The Paris Saint-Germain duo, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, also arrived from the French capital.
On the other hand, Messi won with Barcelona this season only the Copa Del Rey. They, however, left the Champions League from the round of 16.
Reports: Barcelona Did not Offer Messi a Renewal Offer
According to the Catalan newspaper, Mundo Deportivo, the Barcelona administration has not made any official offer to the captain, Lionel Messi.
But, TV3 previously confirmed that Barcelona had made an official offer to convince Messi. It confirmed that only the Argentine legend’s approval remains to resolve the renewal.
However, Mundo Deportivo stressed that Messi has not received an official offer from the Blaugrana yet.
The newspaper confirmed there are negotiations and talks between Messi and the club president Juan Laporta in the past two months.
For now, Barcelona is awaiting the completion of its economic accountability audit to see exactly how much it is financially capable.
Once they finish, Messi will be awarded the new offer accordingly.
However, contacts continue between the Laporta administration and Lionel Messi. It seems that the feeling is positive between the two parties, although the official offer has not yet been made.
It is known that the relationship appears to be friendly between the current Blaugrana administration and Lionel Messi. This is in contrast to the situation with the administration of Josep Maria Bartomeu.
This may give hope to the fans of the Catalan giant to complete the renewal as soon as possible for the most important players of the first team for many years.
Messi doesn’t mind the delay. Rather, La Pulga is optimistic about waiting, to learn more about everything about the club’s sports project.
Sure, it’s not just about money for Messi. He concentrates on the idea of the sports project above all, to ensure success.
The 33-year-old is looking forward to finding out who will be Barcelona’s new coach and what the new deals will be. The financial situation will certainly help in his decision to accept the new offer or not.
