According to reports, Lionel Messi has won 35 trophies during his 17 years in Barcelona. According to reports, he is about to reach an agreement to extend his contract for another two years.
Lionel Messi’s contract with Barcelona ended on Wednesday, and there is no news about his future from the players or the club.
The 34-year-old Messi, who is looking forward to playing for Argentina in the Copa America, will stay with the Catalan club. According to reports, he is close to reaching an agreement to extend his contract for another two years.
Messi’s future has always been a mystery, as his request to leave the club was rejected at the end of the 2019-2020 season. He stayed in the end and said he would reconsider his options after the end of the season.
Since he announced that he wanted to leave the club, things have changed a lot. This decision was made shortly after the team’s embarrassing 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals, one of the worst losses in club history.
However, since then, following the resignation of Joseph Bartomeu, who was at odds with Messi, Barcelona has a new coach and a new chairman of Ronald Koeman.
Joan Laporta (Joan Laporta) played, he won the club’s presidential election, partly because of his good relationship with the Argentine star. When Messi’s career began, he was president. Laporta recently stated that he is optimistic about Messi’s contract renewal. When asked about Messi’s future on Wednesday, he said briefly “Don’t worry”.
Despite going against his wishes, Messi once again performed well this season. He led the Spanish League with 30 goals and helped the team win the Copa del Rey.
According to reports, in the last contract signed by Messi in 2017, his income per season was 138 million euros (164 million US dollars).
During the coronavirus pandemic, the club’s financial situation has been slowly improving, which is a fact in Barcelona’s favor to retain Messi. Koeman will continue to play for the second season, and some players are coming to improve the team’s strength, including Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia.
Messi has won 35 trophies in 17 seasons in Barcelona. He helped the club win four Champions League titles, 10 Spanish League titles, seven Copa del Rey titles and eight Spanish Super Cup titles.
During the club, Messi won a record six Golden Globe Awards for himself. He became the team’s best scorer in history with 672 goals in 778 games and the top scorer in the Spanish League with 474 goals in 520 games. He is also the player with the most matches with the club.
He is the top scorer in La Liga for 8 seasons and the top scorer in the Champions League 6 times. The 26 goals he scored in the match against Real Madrid was a record for the “national derby” match against Barcelona’s fiercest opponent.
Messi came to Barcelona at the age of 13, when he and his family came to Spain to try their luck at the club’s youth academy. He made his debut on October 16, 2004, and two years later helped the club win the first Champions League title in a team led by Ronaldinho.
