Zinedine Zidane hopes Lionel Messi to stay in Spain despite exit claims. Cadena SER reports the Argentine plans to leave Barcelona next summer.

Messi’s current contract expires next year and he has halted negotiations due to frustrations with the direction of the club, said Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was hoping the Argentine maestro will stay in Spain.

“I don’t know what will happen but we hope not because he is in this league and we want the best in this league,” said Real coach Zidane afterwards, when asked about the possibility of Messi leaving.

The 33-year-old has also had disagreements with the board, reacting publicly when sporting director Eric Abidal appeared to blame the players for the sacking of Ernesto Valverde in January.

Barcelona’s presidential elections are due to be held in 2021. That’s when current president Josep Maria Bartomeu will have to step aside.
