The president of the Catalan club, Josep Maria Bartomeu, wants to offer the 32-year-old striker an updated agreement that will not spell out the expiration date of the contract, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Earlier, Josep Bartomeu confirmed that the current contract of the striker contains a clause allowing him to leave the Spanish club at any transfer window of his own free will.
“Leo Messi has a contract through to the 2020/21 season, but the player is able to leave Barca before the final season,” Bartomeu said.
