In Barcelona, faced with the pressing interest of Paris Saint-Germain, optimism was de rigueur in recent days regarding the Messi file. While he had made it known that he would wait until the end of the season to announce his decision, the 33-year-old Argentine would, according to Sport, started negotiating with Joan Laporta. Clearly, the two parties would have met to draw the outlines of an atypical contract. Barça would indeed like to sign his star a sort of life contract including an internal retraining.
For his part, Ronald Koeman keeps repeating in public that the Culés think only of one thing: to keep La Pulga, despite the approaches of other clubs. “The best thing for us is that Messi continues. If you have the best player in the world … All the coaches talk to the club leaders about how to improve the team … That’s normal. Other coaches do. “
Messi takes his time
Will Barça achieve its goals? No one knows yet, but the radio Cadena SER affirms that Messi has somewhat cooled the blaugrana ardor. Clearly, the international albiceleste does not want to hurry, especially as the audit launched within the Catalan club is far from over. To put it simply, Messi does not rule out going to play in the Copa América (June 13-July 11) without having completed his future.
The player is not only waiting to know the financial terms of his contract, he also wants to have clear announcements on the club’s project. And for the moment, following the extension of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain, Barça is betting above all on the arrival of Messi’s great friend, Sergio Agüero. Case to follow.
