Joan Laporta, the new president of FC Barcelona, feels invested with a mission with the extension of Lionel Messi (33 years old). He intends to do everything to convince him to stay and the Argentine would be sensitive to his arguments.
According to the elements obtained by Catalunya Radio, the boss of Barça probed the clan of the Argentine, with a view to a possible new contract. It would have gathered positive echoes, with priority given to the sporting project and not to the economic aspect. The six-time Ballon d’Or has obviously not given up on the idea of continuing his career at Barcelona.
At the end of the contract in June, Lionel Messi had tried to leave during the last summer transfer window. Its president at the time, Josep Bartomeu, however, refused to release him. In recent days, Manchester City seemed to have thrown in the towel and only PSG seemed able to offer him a challenge in line with his expectations, both sporting and financial. However, the Parisian club also gave the impression of prioritizing the extensions of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, which was not necessarily compatible with the arrival of the Argentine.
This season, Lionel Messi has scored 29 goals and provided 13 assists in 37 games in all competitions. Good news seems to be looming for Blaugrana fans.
