Sport is reporting that Barcelona want to start the process of negotiating a new contract with Lionel Messi. Or more correctly, Barcelona want to start the process of letting Lionel Messi negotiate a new contract with them.

The current contract that Messi plays under expires in 2021 and you’d hate for the deal to get anywhere close to being done without a new deal being in place. At the start of the January transfer window in 2021, Messi will be able to start to talk to other clubs.
