Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, finally spoke up about one of the tasks that must be completed as a club leader, none other than Lionel Messi’s future at the Camp Nou.
As is well known, Joan Laporta has indeed been elected as the New President of Barcelona after winning the most votes compared to the other two candidates.
Of course, there are some homeworks that Joan Laporta must complete after being officially elected as the new President of Barcelona, including one of which is the question of Lionel Messi’s future at the Camp Nou, which has recently become a hot topic of conversation.
The future of Messi has become one of Barca’s concerns in recent months. La Pulga had rebelled at the end of the 2019/20 season because he was fed up with Josep Maria Bartomeu’s leadership.
In the end, Lionel Messi did not leave Barcelona, but on the one hand there has been no new contract extension agreed upon by La Pulga to date, even though his contract will end in the summer.
This made the future of the Ballon d’Or winner hang, there is no connection until now.
But now, at least there is new hope with the new President Joan Laporta, who had previously boasted that Messi would stay at the Camp Nou if he was elected as the new president of Barcelona.
Regarding this, Joan Laporta finally spoke up, where he emphasized that his party would do their best so that Messi stayed at the Camp Nou.
“For example, we will try to convince Leo to stay at the club. Sorry Leo, I will try to do my best, and he already knows that!” said Laporta quoted from Sport.
Furthermore, Joan Laporta admitted that it would not be easy to convince Lionel Messi to be willing to stay, but nevertheless his side will fight their best to keep this important player for the Catalan giants.
“Of course we will try to convince him to stay here, because he is the best player in history. Sorry Leo, but I love you and Barcelona love you too. If the stadium is full, you definitely don’t want to go,” he concluded.
