Barcelona to Offer Messi a Life-Time Deal
Barcelona without Lionel Messi isn`t something we`d like to contemplate.
It`d break our hearts to see him pull on the shirt of another club.
The Argentine is our jewel-in-the-crown and his scoring exploits have served us very well.
Messi joined Barcelona as a 13-year-old and made his debut aged just seventeen.
During his career at the Camp Nou, Messi has become Barcelona`s record goal-scorer with 522 goals and has won a staggering 30 trophies.
Messi is also Barcelona`s third all-time appearance maker, having pulled on the Barcelona shirt 596 times, only Xavi and Iniesta with 767 and 641 respectively have played more for the club.
Therefore, it`s thrilling to read that Barcelona are set to offer the 30-year-old what is termed as a 'life-time deal` at the club with the Barcelona CEO, Oscar Grau, remarking at Barcelona`s annual general meeting,
'Messi signed a four-year deal in June, but the club will offer him a lifetime contract.
'The idea is for Leo, who has been here since he was little, to stay here for life because he is an icon. After his playing days we want him to continue to be linked to the club.'
It`s a great idea, let`s hope that pen is put to paper very soon.
