Lionel Messi is eager to pass the twilight of his career at the highest level and would not compromise the potential of winning to remain in the position of Barcelona this summer.
Barcelona continues to have financial problems, but their biggest goal for the foreseeable future remains to extend Messi’s contract. With six months to go, Messi is free to speak to other clubs outside of Spain, but is open to staying longer if the project interests him.
Messi has repeatedly said that he wants the clubs to have a long-term sustainable winning project and has spoken of his disappointment at the Blaugrana’s lack of success in Europe in recent years. According to Don BalonMessi’s chances of staying at the Camp Nou have diminished due to one of the transfer strategies announced by the presidential candidate.
Víctor Font, who aspires to be president of Barcelona, has completely ruled out Neymar’s arrival at the Camp Nou. The candidate mentioned in the past that the financial position of the club and the need to renew the team simply does not allow them to see the return of the Brazilian and not to mention that the fiasco he created by leaving has not been easily forgotten by several seniors either.
Lionel Messi recently mentioned in an interview that Neymar’s proposal would be an extremely difficult prospect for the club given its financial situation, but he is hopeful of playing alongside his former teammate sooner rather than later. Joan Laporta, on the other hand, is confident that PSG will land ahead on the line.
A decision Font makes if he is elected boss may influence the determination of Messi’s future because the Argentine had previously stated that he sees Neymar as his own heir at the Camp Nou. On the other hand, he will seek spending guarantees more than just around the Neymar acquisition, and Font’s pragmatic approach to spending will not help him convince Messi of Barcelona’s future chances of lifting the Champions League trophy. .
What do you think the future holds for the Barça leadership? And will Messi stay at the Camp Nou beyond this summer?
