Lionel Messi is now “90 per cent likely to stay at Barcelona” following Wednesday’s meeting between his father and president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Journalist Martin Arevalo at TyC Sports has made the claim and added that the Barcelona captain is expected to make a final decision on his future on Thursday.

The news comes the wake of Wednesday’s meeting in Barcelona which reportedly saw little progress made and both camps remaining firm in their stance.

Arevalo has also added that Messi is now thinking about staying for one more season and seeing out his contract that runs until 2020-21.

Certainly a swift resolution to the saga would be welcomed to avoid this dispute continuing any further and getting even uglier. Will we finally hear from Leo today?
