The Argentine star has a contract with the club until the end of the season.


presidential candidate Joan Laporta has claimed that Lionel Messi will do his best to stay with the club.

Following Messi's attempt to leave Barça in August, there have been many rumors about the Argentine star's future in recent months. He was trying to activate a clause in his contract that would allow him to leave in the summer, but the club eventually blocked the separation.

It is said that Messi will leave the club at the end of the season and does not intend to stay at the club, but Laporta is against this and claimed that the Argentine star will do his best to stay at the club.

"Messi is now totally focused on catching Atletico Madrid in La Liga and playing the Paris Saint-Germain tie in the Champions League,"

Laporta said to Sport.

"I do not know if he will be playing on Sunday [in the Supercopa de Espana final] but he will be on the bench and it is important that Leo encourage his team-mates.

"I see him more and more happy, he is enjoying it. I know that he wants to stay and I know that he will do everything in his power to stay as long as the club can offer him an offer that suits him."
