Xavier Faus, Barcelona vice-president, said that he does not see a reason why Lionel Messi’s contract at Camp Nou should be extended, and pay per head sportsbooks would really like to know what will happen with the Argentine susperstar.
In February, to the delight of Barca fans all over the world and many pay per head sportsbooks, Messi extended his contract with the la Liga champions, committing himself to the club until 2018.
This term, the Argentine was struggling with several injuries, but price per head services were very happy to see that the player was still able to score 14 goals in as many matches for Barca.
Reports in Spain claimed that earlier in the season, Messi asked for better terms only months after signing a new deal, but pay per head sportsbooks found out that Faus – who heads Barca’s economic operations – insists that there will not be a forthcoming offer, despite rumours of interest from Manchester City.
He told Radio Catalunya: “I don’t see any reason to improve the contract of someone who had their deal enhanced just six months ago.
“In any event, that’s an issue for the sporting staff.
“However, while Sandro Rosell is president the possibility of selling him (Messi) is zero.”
Gerardo Martino, Barca coach, kept quiet about the issue with Messi when he spoke before their UEFA Champions League match on Wednesday with Celtic, and pay per head sportsbooks were wondering what he had in mind.
He said: “I did not participate nor do I want to participate in the contractual issues with players.
“Leo has his value but, like with all players, his worth is made of lots of different things.”
Now fans and pay per head sportsbooks alike wonder if anything lies beneath these words.
