The Catalan legend and former teammate of Lionel Messi has bet on an extension of the Pulga within the Barcelona team.
Free from any commitment since June 30, 2021, the six-fold Ballon d’Or can sign for free in the club of their choice. Having entered into negotiations with the leaders of Barça for several weeks regarding a contract extension, Lionel Messi is more than ever close to a start. Invited to give their opinion on this file by our Spanish colleagues from Sports world, Xavi remain very confident.
« The situation of Lionel Messi? These are market circumstances, we have to wait. I imagine he’s talking to the club and the president. I wish Leo the best, as a friend and as an ass. I wish him to continue at Barca, hoping that can be announced as soon as possible, said the Catalan technician. If I had to bet I would say he will stay at the club. Even if, in football, we say a lot of things, I would say that he will continue. Leo needs Barca and Barca need Leo. He’s happy in Barcelona, he’s been there his whole life. I bet he will extend. »
