Messi and Barcelona
The French newspaper indicated that Argentine football legend Lionel Messi is in the process of signing a new contract for two full seasons with the Catalan team.
But he is not in a hurry to take this step and is expected to overcome the financial crisis by offering a number of players in the team for sale, including French defender Samuel Umtiti, Bosnian Miralem Pjanic and French Antoine Griezmann.

And Spanish reports revealed that Lionel Messi intends to take a three-week vacation before returning to the Barcelona squad at the end of July or the beginning of August, following the crowning of his country, Argentina, with the Copa America title against Brazil, with a clean goal without a response.
Laporta Show and Renovation
And Spanish media reported that Barcelona President Joan Laporta had offered Messi earlier to renew his contract for two years in the Barcelona team, and allow him to leave in order to play in the American League for a period of three years.
The player then decided to retire from the world of football, and then return to the ranks of FC Barcelona to work in the administrative side.

Lionel Messi’s career began within the ranks of the Spanish team Barcelona in the summer of 2004, and the player had previously decided to leave Barcelona and allow him to leave for free, by activating the clause in his contract that allows him to do so.
But this matter was rejected by former Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu because of the expiration of that condition, and forced him to pay the penalty clause of 700 million euros, equivalent to 824 million euros, to allow him to leave, forcing Messi to stay in the team.
