Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is confident that the club’s main star, six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi, will sign a new contract with the club, according to AS.
Messi’s current deal reportedly allowed him to leave the Camp Nou at the end of each season as a free agent, but now the last chance to cut the contract short has expired. Nonetheless, he is still free to leave next summer as the contract expires. And even though it feels like we’ve been here before only for the world’s best player to reconfirm his commitment to Barcelona, numerous reports suggest it might actually happen this time.
Apparently, the Argentinian is extremely unhappy with the way the club is run and the direction it has taken. A lot of money has been spent on incoming transfers since Neymar left in 2017, and it’s fair to say that the three which were each supposed to help fill the void left by the Brazilian’s departure, Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann, have all failed to do so.
But even though he refused to reveal any details, Bartomeu is adamant that Messi will end his playing days at Barcelona.
