Lionel Messi will not be leaving FC Barcelona after this season amidst all the transfer rumours that have been going out there. His contract will be finishing this summer but he will be signing a new contract with the Catalan club. He has been linked to a move to Manchester City, Inter Milan, and Paris Saint Germain. But he will be staying here as he had a great season with FC Barcelona scoring 38 goals and 14 assists in 47 games that silenced his critics who were criticizing him earlier in the season.
Barcelona couldn’t manage to win the La Liga after a disappointing second phase of the season and was knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by PSG in the quarter-final stages, they managed to win the Copa del Rey, this gave Messi the hope to stay at Barcelona and help them in winning more titles in the upcoming season.
Messi hasn’t received a formal new contract yet but it will be signed very soon by the club president Joan Laporta, who was re-appointed as the club president earlier this year. Laporta also signed Sergio Aguero, Messi’s Argentine teammate to build their new team for the 2021-22 season and all these points will be enough to keep Messi at Barcelona and seek more silverware in the next season.
