Barcelona are close to completing a deal for Lionel Messi.
At least that is what reputed journalist, Ferran Correas claimed.
Lionel Messi will stay at Barcelona, it’s never been in doubt and gonna be announced soon. 🔵🔴 #FCB
PSG never had any real chance this summer. NO talks. Only Barça for Leo. ❌
New contract will be until June 2026 instead of 2023 to help the club – as @ferrancorreas reported.

“The professionals are doing their job well,” Barcelona president, Joan Laporta said. “We are very satisfied with how everything is progressing.
“But you know that it is a special market that requires patience, skill and sometimes some juggling. But I think, as the summer progresses, we will be able to give good news.”
Messi’s five year deal will see him at the club until he is 39. He has agreed to take a financial cut in the difficult cirumstances. But after all he is a club legend who deserves it all. Messi has won 10 La Liga titles, seven Copa del Reys and four Champions League trophies.
He recently captured the Copa America with Argentina.
