For the first time in more than 20 years, which makes him come to FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi is not a Barça player for contractual purposes, although in practice nothing has changed this July 1 and his image continues at Camp Nou shining everywhere waiting for a renovation that is facing its last fringes.

Despite the fact that finally the president Joan Laporta could not fulfill his purpose of renewing Messi before his contract ended on June 30, as EFE learned at the club, tranquility reigns and it is expected that the contract that will ensure the continuity of the Argentine closes in a matter of days.

Meanwhile, at the Camp Nou official store, Messi's shirt continues to be the most exposed and the one most purchased by Barça fans and tourists, who trust that he will continue to wear it next season. Messi signed for Barcelona on December 14, 2000 and those responsible for the signing were Josep Maria Minguella, Horacio Gaggioli and Carles Rexach. Since then he has never found himself in a situation as rare as the current one, in which it is taken for granted that he is still a Barça player despite not having a certifying contract.

In full uncertainty, LaLiga made the Argentine's departure official. The governing body of Spanish professional football, disappeared from its page. It is strange to review the Barcelona squad without its greatest star at the fore. When checking the web, we can find names like Ousmane Dembélé, Martin Braithwaite or Ansu Fati, but this is not the case with Messi. Antoine Griezmann appears but his future is still unknown.
