Football fans love when they are provided with all the latest news and important information on their favorite teams and championships. You can find football fixtures and more on our platform. A lot of times the results of the teams depend on their line-ups and on who is playing at the moment. Players are important, that’s why every club wants to get the best ones.
And that’s why Barcelona FC doesn’t plan to part with their awesome striker Lionel Messi, as nobody would. The current contract of Messi with the Catalan club doesn’t expire until the end of the 2020/21 season. The paper contains a clause according to which the Argentinian player can terminate the agreement unilaterally on June 30 of each year.
As we know, the leaders of the Catalan club intend to keep Messi and is ready to offer the striker a lifetime contract. Currently, there are no active negotiations on this issue, but the president of FC Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu and the father of Lionel, Jorge Messi, are in constant contact. Bartomeu said that that Messi is very devoted to his club and that he wouldn’t leave. However, earlier there was some information circulating, according to which Messi thinks of the possibility of terminating the contract with the Catalan club next summer and moving to another team, where he played in his childhood. Is it likely to happen? Time will tell.
Injures and other issues in Barcelona
Barcelona has some other issues apart of the possible departure of Messi and all the story about Neymar. Its defenders Nélson Semedo and Samuel Umtiti were injured. So, what happened?
Semedu, a Portuguese player, was injured during the second half of the match against Serbia. He had to leave the field on a stretcher.
Umtiti, a player from France, was injured during a training session before the meeting with Albania, and that’s why he couldn’t appear on the field and play for the team.
This is unfortunate, but the Catalan team stays strong and has other players that can compensate for the injured ones. The beginning of the season wasn’t fruitful for Barcelona – it could totally do better – but they can recover and stay the leaders.
Such little things can be an influence on the results of teams, that’s why it’s important to keep an eye. Football fixtures can be found on our convenient and progressive platform, so come and learn to understand the world of football better and in a more profound way.
