Messi’s contract renewal is independent of the audit

Joan Laporta has made it clear that Lionel Messi’s contract extension has nothing to do with the club’s audit report results. The Barcelona president explained that his board has prepared some strategy to convince Messi to stay in Catalonia, which does not depend on the audit results, which will become known in July. The president discussed the situation with Messi during Eric Garcia’s official presentation, while he also addressed various other topics. “Messi’s contract renewal is independent of the audit,” Laporta said. “We are in talks with his representatives. It is going well, and we hope that it will continue to progress. We are more or less aware of the audit results this year. When we finish the audit in July, he will give us more information. But for Messi’s contract renewal, we already had a reserve, a prepared plan.”

For Leo, this is not a question of money

Laporta also stressed that Messi’s decision depends solely on the sporting project proposed by the club, and the president insisted that his board will do everything possible to build a strong team. “We are all excited about the possibility that he and Sergio Aguero will play together,” added Laporta. “For Messi, this is not a question of money. For our part, we know our financial framework. He shows a lot of understanding. Messi wants a competitive squad that wins trophies. None of the transfers we do are made concerning negotiations with Leo. We know Messi wants to stay, but like Eric Garcia, he has other suggestions. We appreciate him. I hope his desire to stay at Barcelona is critical.”

Joan Laporta also indicated that the club targets top-shelf players, and he is confident he can convince them to join the club this summer. “Barca are bringing in elite players,” Laporta said. “We are very pleased with the team we have. You will see that the new signings will be of a high level.”
