Unlike last summer, Messi is interested in extending his contract with Barcelona.
superstar Lionel Messi has told club president Joan Laporta that he will sign a new contract with the club.
Barcelona-based journalist, Samuel Marsden claimed that Messi will sign a one-year contract with Barcelona and in 2022, when the club's financial situation improves, he will sign a longer contract.
Messi will turn 34 this week and his contract expires on June 30, which means he may not have a contract with the club for the first time since he arrived in Barcelona.
In Barcelona, there is no doubt that Messi is at the same level as he was at his peak. Last season, he scored 30 goals in 35 games and sent 11 assists to his teammates.
Despite Messi's brilliant performance, Barcelona did not do well and finished third in La Liga at the end of the season. They also failed in the Champions League and were eliminated from the competition after losing to Paris Saint-Germain.
Barca's only success of the season this season was winning the Copa del Rey with a 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.
