Messi: drums of imminent renewal

Barça finalizes the imminent announcement of Messi's renewal, which could be made public before Gamper, which will be played next Sunday.


Looks like he's serious now. The activity in the FC Barcelona offices is frantic and the atmosphere of tension prior to the important days is breathed within the club. It is not for less, because it seems that the desired announcement of Messi's continuity is a matter of days. While Messi is still on vacation in Ibiza, details are being finalized at the club in order to announce the most anticipated news for the Catalans before Gamper, which will be played next Sunday against Juventus in Turin.

Some club sources even slip that the announcement could be made public tomorrow, although the club is preparing for next week an event worthy of the circumstances. The truth is that events must necessarily accelerate because the time frame to close the squad decreases with each passing day in a race against the clock.It is precisely because of this time pressure that President Joan Laporta will not attend the game that Barcelona will play in Salzburg today to put an end to the preseason stage that Koeman's team has carried out in Germany for a week. His idea is to stay in Barcelona to close a series of pending issues in departures and, above all, the continuity of Messi.

Beyond the Argentine question, Barça has yet to resolve the exits of players like Pjanic, Braithwaite and Umtiti and the salary reductions of the most important players in the squad. All these measures as a whole will allow the Blaugrana entity to adapt to the salary mass required by LaLiga to be able to register all the players signed.
