For just over a week, Lionel Messi has been a free player and hopes to reach an agreement with FC Barcelona to renew his contract. The next few days will be key for the player´s future as he will focus entirely on the negotiation and will have to make a decision.
In the last hours, the French media L'Équipe 'calculated and applied a salary reduction to the figures that he newspaper 'El Mundo' indicated that Leo Messi perceived in Barcelona. And the result is that Lionel is losing 100,000 euros a day.
According to El Mundo, Messi pockets 138.9 million gross per season at FC Barcelona, but the reality is that since last July 1, the Argentine does not have a club, which leads to having those losses. Logically that figure does not influence nor does it affect the footballer's economy.
For now, Joan Laporta is doing everything possible to decompress the salary mass, try to frame the numbers and be able to close the new contract for Lionel Messi. "I would like to say that it is already done, but it is not. The talks are going well. , but it is not closed. The idea is to close it as soon as possible. It is convenient for him and also for us because if we solve this matter others will be solved faster. We are confident because he wants to stay", confirmed Laporta a few days ago.
