But if nothing goes wrong, Lionel Messi will continue at Barcelona, with a salary that will be much lower in his first season than he was before.

Once Joan Laporta settled in the fund, one of his main goals was to try to reach an agreement on the basis of an agreement in accordance with the delicate situation of Barcelona’s treasury.
In recent weeks, the Blaugrana boss has waited with some apprehension for the star’s delight in having peace of mind in his project.

With this renewal approved, Koeman would have the pillar he wanted to continue rebuilding the team. Thus, the arc will be placed in a story that arguably began last August when Messi sent Borovax a letter to the club in which he expressed his desire to leave Barcelona without waiting for the completion of his last season of contract.
The Argentine was completely furious with Josep Maria Bartomeu’s guidance and thought he could unilaterally terminate his contract under the release clause that expired in May, but the striker realized it had been extended at the end of the season later than expected. due to the pandemic error.
Barcelona considered that the clause was no longer valid, and in the end Messi had no choice but to start the season under the leadership of Ronald Koeman, with whom he established a good relationship. Months later came Bartomeu’s resignation, the electoral process, and the victory in opinion polls in Laporta that the player has more feelings for.
Messi debuted in 2004 with Barcelona’s first team, adding 17 years to the elite of clubs as he arrived at the age of 13 to enter the lower categories, the best player in Barcelona history and the player who owns the main records of the party, such as goals scored, matches played and titles achieved .

Some veterans like Busquets and Jordi Alba continue to Barcelona and become a mentor to youngsters like Pedri.
Messi’s initial plan was for him to play two more seasons as Blaugrana and then go to the United States to end up as a soccer player in Miami. Despite the fact that he will now sign for five seasons with Barcelona, he does not rule out that after the first two cycles he will start at MLS and will continue to receive a salary from Barcelona as an ambassador. From here five years Messi will be 39. At the club everything is ready when they have to write the official statement.
