Joan Laporta, president of the FC Barcelona, began his press conference, talking about the plans of the club regarding the renewal of the contract of Leo Messi. Without going into great details, Laporta sent an optimistic message regarding the continuity of the Barça star, who ends his current contract on June 30. “The new contract with Messi is going well, but it is not done,” he warned.
In his argument, Laporta added that “we have to continue working from all sectors of the club, from the sports vice presidency, with the executives involved in this issue, also from the presidency.” “We are trying to make a proposal that, within the possibilities of the club, the player accepts,” he added.
In this sense, Laporta stressed that with Messi “The relationship is very good, because Leo loves Barça and, although he is a player who is coveted for his talent, we do have the perception that we are preparing everything that is necessary for him to continue at Barça,” he concluded.
