Rumours has it that Messi will prefer staying in Barcelona depending on the sporting project rather than the economic offer that the team will give him.
The six time Ballon D’Or winner will be out of contract after the current campaign which could see him make a move away from the Camp Nou.
Messi before the season announced to the shock of everyone that he was leaving the Catalans club, but the team managed to keep him.
Reports from MARCA have it that Messi will now prefer to stay depending on the players the team will bring in order to strengthen their squad.
It went on to say that he will prefer to have players like fellow Argentine and friend Sergio Arguero, Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino, current sensational young striker of Borussia Dormund Erling Haaland and Chelsea Midfielder Ngolo Kante.
Barcelona are currently in a financial crises, and making big money signongs in the summer transfer window will be something the club will not be much interested in.
Messi has also been linked to joining former Coach Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and also Paris Saint Germain where his former partner Neymar da Silva Santos jr is.
