Without diverting attention from possible reinforcements such as Erling Haaland’s, the continuity from Leo messi in the main subject of the newcomer Joan Laporta looking ahead to the next season.
The Argentine had both feet out of Barça after what happened in recent years and, after his tug of war with Josep Maria Bartomeu, he came to confess that he wanted to leave in a interview as mediatic as surprising.
Messi reluctantly agreed to stay for a season that was expected to be transitional and in which Barça, against all odds, can still win the League and the Cup. his football.
Things have changed a lot and ‘AS’ implied this Sunday that the conversations for its continuity They could start even before Jorge Messi, his father and manager, lands in Barcelona.
What seemed like an almost confirmed goodbye is now a continuity more than possible. Leo knows that he will have to tighten his belt and, in return, he will ask that Barça be again competitive in Europe in the 2021-22 season.
Furthermore, the same medium alludes to Barça club sources to talk about a surprising idea in relation to his possible new contract with Barça. Messi would have a lifetime contract with the entity ‘culé’ and, thus, the team could distribute their emoluments more over time.
In case that happens and that Leo, for whatever reason, ends up playing in the United States, Qatar or another minor league, during those months he would not get paid from Barça to do it again when he took up a position at the club after retirement.
An idea that, as far-fetched as it may seem, could ensure the continuity of a Leo Messi who no longer sees with such bad eyes continuing in the club to which he has given his entire sports career.
