FC Barcelona is preparing for the most anticipated moment of the summer: solving the 'Messi case' and announcing the continuity of the Argentine star at the club

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Lionel Messi left to be player of the FC Barcelona the past 1 July, when it won officially his bond with the Barcelona entity. The economic problems and the subject of the mass salarial have caused the delay of the signature of a new agreement, but always has kept the intention, in both parts, to give him continuity to 'The Flea' in the club of his life.

It fits to remember that it does a pair of weeks, the Barça arrived to a principle in accordance with Leo Messi by five seasons, until 2026, and with the big novelty that the player will earn 50% less than what perceived in his previous agreement. The 'proof' that the star rosarino want to, at all costs, close his 'signing' definite by the Barcelona entity. However, it is not something that depends only to the intention that has to remain .

The true is that, as it has informed the newspaper 'SPORT' this Monday, already there is marked date in the calendar for the resolution of the 'case Messi'. August is the definite month for the Barça and expects that during the first week of the month, after the return of the forward to the work (pautado for 2 August ) give the last steps to announce the so longed for continuity of 'The Flea' in the Camp Nou. Like this then , there is not a day in specific, until the moment, but yes the determination to give him 'end' to the serial at the beginning of month.

"There is win to sign it, there is haste but can not precipitate us, there are some tempi that it is necessary to respect" there would be desvelado to 'SPORT' a near source to the negotiation, by what boasts that sooner or later, will resolve all the subjects 'pending' of the club that prevent to close the agreement with Leo, remembering that in this moment the Barça can not inscribe him in his staff.

Before the agreement...

From the offices of the FC Barcelona have to resolve a lot of appearances before Leo Messi was announced as 'new' Barcelona player. Still the club has to concretise the exits of several players with which Ronald Koeman does not explain (Samuel Umtiti, Miralem Pjanic, Philippe Coutinho...) To free the mass salarial, in addition to concretising the sales (or barters) of footballers that are keys to do gap, being the concrete case of Antoine Griezmann.

As you report them of the last weeks, the Barça will see reduced in 50% his limit salarial regarding the past season (will happen of 347 million euros to 160 'kilos', maximum) by what the situation is very complicated, but no impossible. It will be essential, also, that the directors concretise the discounts salariales of the 'heavy weights' of the changing room: Gerard Hammered, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto...

Up to now, the Barcelona have not had the success expected and, in fact, only have achieved to free little less than 35 millions with the traspasos of the summer, a very move# away figure to the needs of the culés, but from the offices of the Camp Nou keep the hope and positivism that resolveran all the 'fringes' and will be able to announce, in brief, the continuity of Leo Messi in the club.
