Barcelona cannot yet make formal contract offer to Lionel Messi

The future of star player Lionel Messi at Barcelona remains at the forefront of Spanish football news going into the run-in of the current campaign.

A report from Catalan media outlet Esport3 now say that the Blaugrana are unable to offer him a new contract formally as yet due to the uncertainty over their financial situation.

It is said by the report that club president Joan Laporta is not yet aware of the full scope of the club’s debt and financial ability to renew Messi’s contract at the club.

It remains unclear if the Argentine superstar will renew his deal at the Camp Nou – which currently has less than three months remaining – or become a free agent on 30 June.

The 33-year-old is out of contract at the Catalan giants at the end of June and he has theoretically been free to speak to other clubs from January due to the expiration date.

Last summer’s Messi news saw him attempt to leave the club as a free agent but he backed down on his stance as he did not want to go to court to force the move, and he stayed for this campaign – but his future now is dominating Barcelona news.

Now speculation over Messi’s future is once again taking central focus as he is currently able to walk out of the club at the end of June.

    No need to renew his contact. He is worthless right now. Try to sell him and get some money.

    Don’t renew his contract. Let him go wherever he want, because no one will take him now. He is full of waste and useless to any team. Atleast try to get some money out of him.
