Barcelona To Extend Leo Messi Contract

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said the La Liga champions are planning to offer superstar Lionel Messi a new contract.

Messi re-signed with Barca in 2017 – an extension that runs through to 2021 – and the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has not slowed down this season.

The 31-year-old, who made his competitive debut for Barca in October 2004 at the tender age of 17, has scored a LaLiga-high 32 goals in 2018-19 and 42 in all competitions.

Bartomeu wants to renew Messi’s contract at Camp Nou, where he is Barca’s all-time leading goalscorer.

“We want him to have a really long career so we can keep on enjoying him,” Bartomeu told ESPN . “Lionel’s managed to break down borders. Everyone admires him and he’s applauded at other stadiums by rival fans.

“We would like to renew his contract, that’s the idea. He is young – you can see that [in his performances] – and he still has two years on his deal. He’s always improving, always innovating. I believe he still has many years in front of him and in the coming months we will sit down with him so that he has many more years at Barcelona.”
