It is not the first time that Josep Maria Bartomeu speaks of the era post-Leo Messi in the FC Barcelona. The '10' carry a lot of years leading to the team barcelonista and still remain him, at least, a pair more. The Barcelona president always has left clear that it wants to have the Argentinian all the time that can and in his last interview has gone back to be followed this line.

The maximum mandator culé ensured that his idea is to have the one of Rosario for ever, even after it withdraw . "Always I do a comparison with Peeled. I peeled it was a man of an alone club. I do not have doubts that after Messi​ finish his career like footballer, will follow linked to this club for the rest of his life", commented in his interview for The Associated Press.

Bartomeu remembered that the agreement of the '10' finishes in 2021, but ensured that the idea is to prolong it of indefinite way. "The agreement of Leo Messi finishes in 2021. But surely it will be the will of all the parts involved, if it feels strong and with ambition, extend this agreement indefinitely", confirmed.

At the same time that said this, the president also confirmed that in the club already prepare to the team for when Messi was not. "We are preparing the back era to Leo Messi. There are other young players that come. Players that come of the foreigner, but also players that come of our academy, the Masia. And we are very happy because we are preparing this back era to Messi", signalled.

The last years of Messi

The captain barcelonista fulfilled in June 32 years, with what already has gone in in his last seasons like professional. These last campaigns, gives the impression that the Barça is not taking advantage of as it would owe the best years of the best player of his history. The culés do not win the Champions League from the 2015 and course after course is fracasando in the maximum continental competition.

In the League of Champions of the last season, for example, Read could not do more to avoid the ridiculous of his in Anfield. The '10' did not mark, but put him in tray a goal to Jordi Alba and another to Luis Suárez. Both forgave and in the second part the Barcelona finish going to rack and ruin. This summer brought to Griezmann so that the one of Rosario had a partner of height, but for the moment neither is working. This campaign could be one of the last of Messi in the Barça and his mates have to be to the height.
