When the signing of Lionel Messi’s new contract with Barcelona was expected, it is already reported that things have changed, writes Zeri.info.
“Marca” reported a little while ago that Lionel Messi is now far from renewal and that the president, Joan Laporta, knows the situation.
Today (Thursday) the leaders of the Catalan club met with the Argentine striker and his representatives, while the formalization of the continuation of the cooperation was expected.
However, the Spanish media have reported that the meeting did not go well and that there were tensions, while “Marca” wrote with special emphasis that “Leo Messi has never been further away from the renewal with Barcelona than today”.
Whereas, “RAC1” writes that the situation already created can be considered irreversible. According to this Catalan medium, Messi has informed the club officials that he does not like the team with the current footballers.
The 34-year-old is also said to have disliked the club’s plan for the future.
The only salvation for Barcelona and the renewal of the six-time contract of the winner of the “Golden Ball” is said to be the salary, if the Argentine agrees to have a reduction, given the financial crisis that has hit the club.
It remains to be seen how things will turn out and whether Messi will be sacrificed again for his only club that has played in his career as a professional footballer.
Recall that Lionel Messi is a free agent, as his contract with Barcelona expired on July 1. /Zeri.info
