With a definite situation and absent from Barcelona’s activities during the week, Lionel Messi met with friend Luis Suárez for dinner at the Uruguayan’s home. The Spanish program “Jugones” caught the Argentine leaving the residence. It is the second meeting of both in six days since shirt 10 expressed his desire to leave the Catalan team.
The Argentine awaits the arrival of his father, Jorge Messi, who left Rosario on Tuesday afternoon. Jorge is the son’s representative and is due to meet Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu on Wednesday to discuss the player’s situation. Messi, 33, wants to negotiate his departure. Josep, according to the Spanish press, will propose a contract renewal until 2022.
The greatest player in the history of Barcelona has a contract until June 2021. However, there is a clause that allows Messi to request termination without paying a fine at the end of each season. The deadline for exercising this provision was until June 10. The Argentine believes that the stoppage of football due to the pandemic gives him the possibility to make use of the clause.
