It’s the question that the world of football are waiting for an answer to, even more so if you’re a fan of FC Barcelona.
In less than a week’s time Lionel Messi’s contract with the club will come to an end, and he will be free to move to whichever club he chooses.
President, Joan Laporta, has made it abundantly clear that he wishes to retain the services of the club’s best-ever player, but Financial Fair Play rulings may, ultimately, be what makes the deal impossible.
Barcelona, one of the biggest clubs in the world, are having to effectively sell before they can buy.
“Hopefully we will continue to play together next year,” he responded, giving absolutely nothing away.
“Let’s see if he renews.”
No news is evidently very good news at this point, albeit the club would surely want the Argentinian to put pen to paper sooner rather than later.
