Leo Messi’s 72-hour limit

There are only three days left before June becomes July and this change of month is not a common change in Barcelona. The arrival of July 1 will also mark the end of Lionel Messi’s time at the Camp Nou, because his contract with the club expires at midnight on June 30.

At midnight on June 30, Messi will be the free agent and can sign a contract with any club in the world without interfering and without taking a single cent from the Catalans.

Desperate to avert such an event, Barcelona president Joan Laporta is working 24 hours a day and fighting against time. Messi, meanwhile, is keeping everyone under fever.

Laporta wanted to announce the extension of Messi’s agreement with Barca on June 24, the Argentine’s birthday, but failed.

Now, he has another date in mind, June 29, on his birthday. Achieving the goal of convincing Messi to extend his contract with the club would be the best imaginable gift he could give himself.

With less than 72 hours left to sort things out, Barcelona are doing their best to avoid the situation in which Messi is a player without a contract even for a minute, according to Marca.

Messi has been part of Barcelona for 20 years, having joined the club in 2000 as a child.

Messi, who is now in Brazil playing for Argentina in the America’s Cup, aroused interest from other clubs and was lured by Paris Saint-Germain. But Barcelona are convinced they will sign a two-year contract with the 34-year-old.

Although he made a lot of efforts to leave last summer, Messi is open to staying in Barcelona, ??but on the condition that the club builds a competitive team around him and has insisted that money is not his goal.
