Whether Barcelona want Lionel Messi to stay longer or not is not even a question, with the Blaugrana club desperate to have the Argentine footballing maestro for ‘many more years’.
Messi had signed an extension deal with Barcelona at the end of 2017 and his contract expires in 2021. And not so surprisingly, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is ready to offer the 31-year-old another extension.
Bartomeu said, “Messi’s contract is up in two years but, given how he’s playing, we will have him for many more years. Leo’s intelligent, he knows how to measure things. If he feels good, he will tell us. When he decides, we will renew his deal.”
Messi’s next contract will be his 10th professional deal with the Barcelona club. Read full story at ESPN.
