Rumors won’t stop, until Lionel Messi poses for photographers, pen in hand, signing his new contract with Barcelona. According to their president, that’s all that’s missing, the… photograph.
The contract’s signed. It’s valid from the month of June, from June 30, the same day that he got married, curiously. It’s been audited because it goes into the accounts for last season. There are no problems. Leo will arrive and we’ll have the official photograph and the protocol of the signature. We’re relaxed
Josep Maria Bartomeu told reporters, before giving more details about not the one, but three Messi contracts that have been taken care of.
There are three contracts. One with the Messi Foundation, which is signed with the president of the Foundation and the player’s brother. There’s an image rights contract with Messi, which his father has signed, who is the administrator of his company, and the employment contract, which his father has signed, who has the power to do so
the Barcelona president said. Last, when pressed to answer questions regarding Messi’s release clause, he was quick to point out that Messi’s case is very different to that of Neymar.
Leo’s commitment to the club cannot be compared with what Neymar felt for Barcelona
