LaLiga: Barcelona hopeful Lionel Messi contract is signed soon

LaLiga: Barcelona hopeful Lionel Messi contract is signed soon”

Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barcelona's president, stated that there was an agreement in place for Iniesta to sign a new deal, but the midfielder insisted that, while he is negotiations with the club, he has yet to make a decision over his future.

The La Liga giants have agreed a deal with Messi which would tie him down until 2021 after a new deal was announced in July, with his previous contract due to expire in 2018.

"The signing is an act which could happen at any moment". "I hope it's soon".

"I point to our presidents words", Fernandez told Movistar following Barcelona's 5-0 derby win over Espanyol on Saturday - a game where Messi struck his 38 career hat-trick for the club.

"He's come back from worldwide duty [with Argentina], after a lot of travel and two tough games", Fernandez said.

"He is capable of changing a game at any moment and the hard thing he manages is to maintain that rhythm".

Barca are desperate to ink the duo as new boss Ernesto Valverde attempts to re-stabilise his team after the shock record-breaking departure of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

"We have had a hard month".

'I feel calm. It is normal, when you are in this situation, to value many things. If we let time pass a little, we will see things differently.

"The people that have had to explain things have not done it well. News has come out which isn't real and these things do damage and create unpleasant situations".

Andres Iniesta's father has hinted that the Spain playmaker will end his career at Barcelona.

The father of Andres Iniesta has played down reports linking his son with a move to Juventus in the 2018/19 campaign. "I am convinced that will happen".
