Barcelona ‘confident’ they have secured Lionel Messi contract extension amid lingering Man City and PSG ties

Barcelona are increasingly convinced that Lionel Messi will sign a new contract – thus ending discussions on a possible transfer to Man City or Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi’s current deal is set to expire this summer, just 12 months after he publicly said he wanted to leave the LaLiga club.

The signing of close friend and compatriot Sergio Aguero on a free transfer from Manchester City appears to have sealed the deal as such.

According to reliable transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona are working on the final details and clauses of a new two-year deal for Messi.

New Barca president Joan Laporta has pledged to do everything possible to keep Messi at the club.

Speaking last week, he indicated that a deal was on the verge of being struck, saying: “Leo surely deserves more and could do more elsewhere, but his desire is to make Barca a big one.

“I’m sure he appreciates the effort we’re putting in, and I think he’s excited and motivated by the project we’re building.

“For Leo, it’s not about the money, it’s about the team and their chances of winning.

“Leo, above all, wants to feel comfortable, to feel appreciated. And then to win.
