Messi and Barcelona are in talks to renew their contract
BARCELONA – Negotiations between Barcelona and Leo Messi to renew their contract with Argentina are progressing satisfactorily, with President Jon La Porte following a new meeting with the footballer’s father this week.
TV3 announced that Messi already had an offer from Persia, during which he was able to confirm that LaBorte had sent a first plan to his father, in which he broke the financial sum he was prepared to pay to Catalan club Argentina. Continue to Camp No.
Evidence tells ESPN that the meeting was “very positive”, but Messi wants to wait to know the game plan to make a final decision.
ESPN has already announced last month that it plans to offer Barcelona’s president Messi a two – year deal, with the option of extending it once again to make up for the pay cut the player has to accept.
In this way, Messi, who ends his contract on June 30, has the opportunity to decide whether to continue in Barcelona after the World Cup in Qatar or choose to gain experience at MLS.
Last December Messi admitted that there has always been the “illusion of being able to enjoy the experience of living in the United States” and that idea is still in his head.
In this sense, TV3 promises Laporte’s final offer to last 5 years, but it will also give Argentina the opportunity to end his life in the United States and then return to Barcelona as ambassador.
Sources close to the talks agree with ESPN that he knows that Messi’s first choice will always be to stay in Barcelona, which would mean a substantial reduction of the nearly 70 million net he currently collects.
However, sources said that Messi would prioritize the sporting program over economic concessions and that Laborda expects a variety of funding to build a competitive team.
In this sense, as ESPN reports, Persia already has the zero cost signing of Eric Garcia and hopes to ensure the hiring of Kun Aguirre and Guinea Vijnaltham in the coming days. The Argentine striker has terminated his contract with Manchester City, who already have a verbal contract to play for Barcia for the next two seasons, while Vijnaltham will complete three years after ending his relationship with Liverpool.
Despite the possibility of Ronald Coman continuing another season with no consensus alternatives to replace him, Barcia continue to work on other reinforcements and the search for a coach.
In this sense, ESPN announced Wednesday that Roberto Martinez is one of the names to be evaluated, but there are other ways in the table.
Laborda will attend a press conference on Friday to review the current situation.
Messi is already in Argentina to prepare for the Copa America controversy, so his father will be the one carrying all the weight of the negotiations in the coming weeks.
ESPN also contacted Digital Messi’s surroundings, assuring them that there is currently no “legitimate offer” for the Barcelona player.
