Most likely it will be the desire of all parties, in the event that he feels solid and certain, to renew this agreement.
President Bartomeu has anticipated that Lionel Messi will stay at Barcelona for an additional five years.
Because of a release clause in his agreement, Messi can end his relationship with the Catalans in the late spring.
Nonetheless, Bartomeu thinks that the 32-year-old, who got another hat-trick for the Catalan giants at the end of the week, in any event, has the attributes to remain at Camp Nou until 2024.
Bartomeu is cited by Sky Sports News as saying: "Most likely it will be the desire of all parties, in the event that he feels solid and certain, to renew this agreement.
"At last it is he who must choose. He has the privilege to choose when he will quit playing football. Be that as it may, similar to what he said half a month prior, he needs to complete his playing profession at Barcelona.
"Throughout the following three seasons, our leader will keep on being Leo Messi. There's no uncertainty that he is as yet young, still solid. He is as yet eager. So Leo Messi will at present play with us for the following two, three, four or five years. I have no questions about that."
Messi has recently been heavily linked with a comeback to childhood club Newell's Old Boys.
