Two and a half months before the expiration of Lionel Messi's contract with Barcelona, the Catalan club have not yet offered a new contract to their star, writes Sport.
The new president of Barça, Joan Laporta, has already expressed his desire to keep the Argentine in the team, but has not yet provided a specific proposal.
It is said that Laporta will start intensive negotiations with Messi when the results of the current audit at the club are released. After that, he will have a clear idea of the financial situation of Barcelona and, according to him, the proposal to Leo Messi will be prepared.
Earlier today, Radio Catalonia broadcast information that the Catalan captain has already received an offer for a new contract, but according to Sport, this is not the reality.
It is said that Messi is very likely to stay in Barcelona because he has good relations with Laporte. The Argentine national is even ready to seriously reduce his salary so that the club can recover from the financial crisis following the COVID-19 pandemic.
