It has been one of the… weirdest soap-operas these last months, with FC Barcelona repeating that the deal is agreed and signed by Lionel Messi’s father, and yet failing to explain convincingly why the Argentine star himself hasn’t seen this new deal that should keep him at Camp Nou until 2021.
“The photograph is the only thing missing”, Barcelona persident Josep Maris Bartomeu has said various times, and club legend Xavi seems to think so too.
Leo’s commitment to Barca is total. His father has signed the renewal and, therefore, the only thing left to do is to take the photograph
the former Blaugrana captain told the club’s official website.
We are not sure, but for me, it’s done. Leo Messi needs Barca and especially Barca needs Messi. It would be very good for Barcelona that Messi stayed there for his entire career
Xavi said, explaining that
we have a better chance of winning titles if he stays at Barca. He is the best player in the history of the game.
As for the Blaugrana’s season so far;
Barca is doing well and of course, they can do better. The beginning of the season has been spectacular for them. I think the team is doing good
Xavi’s comment was.
