Lionel Messi set to bag new Barcelona contract
Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu has confirmed that club’s top Argentine star Lionel Messi will be offered a new contract very soon, while terming the criticism of the club’s long serving star as “harsh”.
“Messi is under contract until 2018,” Bartomeu told TV3. “But we want adidas to improve it to adapt to football’s current situation,” hinting that the club will do any thing to keep Messi at Camp Nou.
“I think people are being unfair on Leo Messi. He has led us to so many wins in recent years. He has led the team and done so very well, and we have no doubt that he will continue to lead the club into the future.
