Barcelona will offer Messi a lifetime contract

The new Barcelona president Joan Laporta wants to offer the team striker Lionel Messi a life contract, El Confidencial reports.

According to the source, the agreement will provide for cooperation with the Argentine after the end of his career.

Simultaneously, the amount of the contract is likely to decrease – this is due to the financial problems of the blue garnet caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Laporta became Barcelona president on 8 March. In the elections, 54.28 per cent of voters voted for the functionary.

On January 31, El Mundo revealed details of Messi’s current contract with Barcelona. It was reported that the total amount of payments would be almost 556 million euros.

In the summer of 2020, Messi intended to leave the Catalan club. However, the Barcelona management managed to persuade the player to stay in the team. The current agreement expires in the summer of 2021.
