2020 isn’t an easy year for FC Barcelona, after some disastrous games and some very bad financial management. Ex-president Josep María Bartomeu left his charge and the club doesn’t yet know who is going to be the president during the next year, as elections will be celebrated on December.
Another important problem is the future of Lionel Messi. The Argentinian star tried to leave during the last transfer window but finally didn’t. After a couple of months, rumors indicate that he will be doing so next summer, after Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain show clear interest on him.
What happens next in the Catalan side will be strictly leaked to the future of Messi. Another player that should renew his contract to continue is Ousmane Dembélé. The French attacker will end his on June 2022 and could be able to negotiate with other sides in a year, if the renewal isn’t made.
As Barça invested $130 million on him, they don’t want him out and less for free. The player knows this, as well as the situation of Messi, and that’s we he asked to gain more money in his new contract to stay. With this position, the pressures the club to give him the money he wants, in a critical financial situation.
