Messi and FC Barcelona have yet to sign an extension
Lionel Messi has yet to decide if he will stay at Barca or leave the club.
On his late-night radio show, ‘El Larguero,’ journalist Manu Carreño revealed that the delay is due to a lack of mutual agreement between the two parties: “there is still no agreement between Messi and FC Barcelona”, he added, “it’s not a question of needing a signature from the player, what is needed is both sides to come to an agreement.
Within the FC Barcelona camp, there was optimism that the club would be able to confirm Lionel Messi’s contract renewal on the same day that the Argentine striker celebrated his 34th birthday.
Rumours began to circulate earlier this week that an announcement was on the way, but both sides are urging caution while acknowledging that the sequence of events is on the right track.
