Barcelona are yet to table a new contract extension offer to Lionel Messi.
Marca reports that discussion have been held, but the Messi is yet to receive an offer that he can look over and decide upon, with just 21 remaining before he becomes a free agent.
Joan Laporta is clear about the offer he wants to make to Messi, and he has been for weeks. He wants to offer a two-year renewal with a 50 million euro gross salary per year – which is around half of his current pay. Then, there would be a 10-year offer for Messi to take up an ambassadorial role for the club, which would see him earn ten million euros.
The president has explained some of these terms to Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, but nothing has been set in stone.
With three weeks left, Messi’s contract is no closer to being signed.
