The future of Lionel Messi is a source of concern for Joan Laporta. Indeed, the Argentinian contract ends end of year 2021 and still hasn’t renewed it.
Fears about this renewal but the former president of FC Barcelona wants the club to do the utmost to keep it: “his future? it’s quite worrying (…) Messi is a player who can still give to his team, he is the best player in the world and in history. The club must find a way so that it can sign a new contract and meet the necessary conditions ”
Despite his fears, Laporta did not disclose his intention to run in the elections to be held in 2021 but took the time to send a message to the current president of Barca, Bartomeu: “in 2010, Barca was a world leader. He still has a year (at the head of the club) and I hope he can succeed but I have doubts. ”
