Lionel Messi will change mind and stay at Barcelona until 2021. The 33-year-old has a clause in his deal allowing him to leave at the end of any season.
There is a 90 percent chance that Lionel Messi will decide to fulfil the remainder of his contract at Barcelona until the summer of 2021, say fresh reports in Argentina.
Journalist Martin Arevalo has spoken to TyC Sports in the South American nation tonight to say that Thursday will be a “definitive” day for the player and the possibility is that he agrees to fulfil the remaining one year of his contract at the Camp Nou.
Arevalo claims that this is a new development following a period where the player had his heart set on leaving the club this summer as a free agent.
Earlier on Wednesday, Jorge Messi – Lionel’s father and agent – claimed that it would be “very difficult” for the player to remain at the Catalan giants beyond this summer.
