Barcelona positive about Messi signing a new contract with the club.
Messi is currently out of contract this summer and talks over a new contract with Barcelona is currently ongoing.
But Barcelona are currently forbidden from registering any new player at this moment due to the club’s financial situation.
The Barcelona legend won his first major international trophy Copa America with Argentina and club president Joan Laporta issues an update on the magician’s future.
Laporta said via AS: “[Messi’s renewal] is progressing adequately.
“All the Catalans, Barcelona, Catalunya and the entire football world are happy because Leo won the Copa America. It is very exciting to see the best player in football history get excited about winning a title like this and he made all of us cry with joy.
“He is very happy, we are all happy. I am happy for Leo who has managed [to win the Copa América], together with his team-mates, and that Argentina are once again in the elite.
“I am happy for Messi’s family, for Argentina, for Barcelona who are recognised, admired and loved for having this bond with Leo.”
