Jorge Messi, father and agent of Barcelona star Lionel Messi has met with president Joan Laporta.
TV3 reports that Jorge, met with Laporta to discuss the issue of the superstar’s future.
The report also has it that both men wanted to put across their stances to the other and there were signs that they both wanted to reach an agreement.
Laporta is yet to make an offer of a contract extension to Messi, preferring instead to wait on more details on the club’s accounts before playing his hand.
It appears as though Messi’s priorities are sporting and not financial in terms of staying at the Camp Nou. He wants a winning project on the field rather than another big pay day.
There has been talk of the Argentine’s wages being slashed by 50 percent, allowing Barcelona to leave money to sign a top player in the summer.
