Laporta convinced Messi will stay

Barcelona president Joan Laporta is “convinced” talisman Lionel Messi will sign a new contract to stay with the LaLiga giants.

Messi is out of contract at the end of the season and his future with Barca is far from certain amid strong links to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.

As Barca prepare for Saturday’s Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao, Laporta was asked about the record six-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“Everything is progressing adequately,” Laporta told Deportes Cuatro.

“I will do everything within the club’s capabilities to get him to stay. That’s what we’re doing. Messi is motivated.

“He is an extraordinary person and I am convinced that he will want to continue at Barca.”

Messi has scored a league-high 23 goals and supplied eight assists in 28 LaLiga appearances for Barca this season.

In total, the 33-year-old has netted 31 goals across all competitions in 2020-21.
