The Blaugrana are going to have a chance to make another €7million as they aim to raise funds to retain Lionel Messi’s services with a new contract.

Lionel Messi

’s new deal is pending as

Barcelona

have two options; to lower their La Liga salary cap or to earn enough money to secure the Argentina international’s new contract which should be worth 25% of incoming cash.

To meet that requirement, the Catalans are cashing in on their players like Junior Firpo and Matheus Fernandes this summer.

Now they have an opportunity to make another €7million since Getafe are interested in signing midfielder

Carles Alena

.

Angel Torres

, the

Getafe

president, told

Sport

:

“Aleñá’s operation is pending on Messi’s.

“The boy wants to come to Getafe and Barcelona knows it.

“I think it will have a happy ending. I am negotiating directly with Barcelona and I hope Aleñá is here before we go to La Manga.”

The 23-year-old was on a loan spell at Getafe last season and played in 22 games under the reign of Pepe Bordalas.

Bordalas parted ways with the club but according to Sport, Alena would like to work with new boss Michel and the two parties are discussing a fee of €7million.

Transfermarkt

values Alena at around €15.7million, but his contract will run out next summer and Torres revealed that the midfielder is not planning on signing an extension at Camp Nou.
