‘His relationship with Barca will last forever’ – Bartomeu planning new deal for ‘one-club man’ Messi
The Spanish giants are to set open negotiations with the club icon with the hopes of keeping him in the side for the rest of his career
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.
