Messi ‘plans to remain at top level for two more years’

There is said to be growing optimism at Camp Nou that Messi will put pen to paper on an extension, but as things stand he is due to become a free agent in under two months’ time.

According to CAT Radio, Barca president Joan Laporta laid out his vision for Barcelona’s future during a meeting at Messi’s house, and the six-time Ballon d’Or wants to be central to the Blaugrana’s success for the next two years.

Messi would then supposedly head to the MLS to finish his glittering career when he turns 36, but Laporta is thought to have left the meeting feeling positive about the club’s chances of keeping Messi on the books for next season.
