Lionel Messi will sign a contract extension with Barcelona when his contact expires in June. The club’s greatest player recently eclipsed Xavi Hernandez record by appearances 767 times in a Bluagrana shirt.
Messi wants to retire at Barcelona but, he wants to be assured of the club’s long term ambition. At 33, Messi still feels young and capable.
He wants both domestic and European trophies and needs Barcelona to reach the standard of yester years to win it.
Barcelona have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Liverpool’s star Gini Wijnaldum. The club’s president Joan Laporta has spoken candidly with the player and assured him of his place in the first team.
Wijnaldum wants a substantial increment in his wages which Liverpool aren’t willing to offer but Barcelona are ready to increase his $70,000-a-week to $140,000,-a-week.
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has expressively asked the club to bring Memphis Depay.
Koeman believes Depay’s presence will be massively improve Barcelona’s firepower upfront. He wants the Dutch midfielder along with Gini Wijnaldum who he believes can partner him in attack.
Wijnaldum is a sensational goal scorer but unfortunately, Liverpool are not playing a system that bring his goal scoring prowess.
