It’s no secret that Lionel Messi, one of the best soccer players in the world, is a key player for Barcelona. For many years, the Argentine forward has been a key part of Barcelona’s success and helped to win numerous trophies. Recent reports have suggested that Messi could be leaving Barcelona. Joan Laporta, Barcelona’s president, has expressed concern about the situation and said that Messi should return to the Catalan club. Laporta’s comments indicate that he is certain that Messi will decide to stay in Barcelona. It will be interesting to watch how things develop over the next few weeks.
According to Spanish reports, Lionel Messi, the Barcelona star, has decided to remain at the club following a meeting with Joan Laporta. Messi’s future has been a subject of intense speculation over the past months. The Argentine was apparently unhappy with the club’s current direction under Josep Maria Bartomeu. Bartomeu’s resignation, in October, led to a shift in fortunes at Barcelona. Laporta was able to return to the presidency in January. According to reports, Laporta met with Messi Tuesday morning to convince him to extend his current contract, which runs out in June 2021. According to the report, Messi informed Laporta about his decision and will announce it soon. This will be a major boost for Barcelona, currently in second place in La Liga and progressing to the knockout phase of the Champions League.
