Barcelona | Transfer market Contract at the end of the season
Wwhether he signs a new contract at the club or not, it is unthinkably getting closer Barcelona – to lose Lionel Messi.
The 33-year-old made it clear in the summer that he wanted to leave Camp Nou, with a transfer request he sent via burofax.
Resignation Josep Maria Bartomeu he offered hope that the Argentine would eventually stay, but there is still no progress in terms of any renewal of the contract.
A new president with the right ideas and intentions could persuade Messi to stay after the expiration of his contract at the end of this season.
However, performance Ronald KoemanSo far, this campaign does not give much reason for optimism Barcelona may pose a challenge for major awards in the near future.
What if Messi in the end he leaves, who could Barcelona lead to replace it? We have put together several options.
Barcelonais the search for Inter The front is well documented, even before Messi he personally submitted that transfer request in August. A dynamic striker with a lot of potential, Lautaro it would surely bring something valuable Barcelonathe team is absent Messi.
The Argentine international has a contract with his current club until the summer of 2023. During the summer, Inter they were unwilling to dismiss their high-ranking 23-year-old, which eventually led to a halt to the transfer. Ought Lautaro cancel his contract, the Catalans could do business.
Perhaps an obvious choice, there is constant talk of returning from Camp Nou Neymar since his record relocation to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017. For now, the Brazilian’s only chance is to reunite with the former club in the Champions League or the courtroom. BarcelonaFinancial troubles mean that this business is not for the beginning at the moment. Things can change, though.
“[Neymar] I would like to return to Barcelona, his representatives told us, “he said Barcelona presidential candidate Emily Rousaud in December. “The transfer cannot be performed; Barcelona they have no financial means now. That will be when his contract expires. “
NeymarThe contract has only 18 months left to run in Paris PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently said the 28-year-old wants to sign a new contract in the capital of France.
If you take BarcelonaDue to financial problems from the equation, the Egyptian is perhaps the best player to fill Messiis a place on the team for purely sporting reasons. U 28, Salah is in the main years of his career and has proven to be one of the best European players in recent seasons. Moreover, there are recent reports of Salah be unhappy because Liverpool.
“Real Madrid i Barcelona are top clubs … We never know what will happen in the future, “he told AS in December.” At the moment I can say that everything is in the hands of the club. Of course I want to break records [at Liverpool] and, I repeat, every record in the club, but everything is in the hands of the club. “
Salah, as Lautaro, he still has two and a half years left from the Liverpool deal.
The solution for Barcelona‘s Messi the problem may be under their noses. In his few seasons with the first team, Ansu Fati has shown its ability to make a difference for Blaugrana now and here. A knee injury veered off the path of his 2020/21 campaign, but there is much more left of the incredibly talented teenager.
Aside Ansu Fati, several more names are in progress Barcelona a detachment that might try to fill Messi void. I like Ansu Fati,, Pedri has already proven to be an advantage for Koemanon the side of joining the first team. Antoine Griezmann, WHO Barcelona spent 120 million euros in 2019, it seems less likely to step down.
