Barcelona and Lionel Messi have reportedly finally begun negotiating the terms and conditions for his contract renewal. The current deal runs out on June 30th and the future of the Argentine has been up in the air for some time.

The main negotiations have seemed to take place between Barca president Joan Laporta and Jorge Messi. The initial talks have been about how the club and Messi will work together moving forward.

There are certain details that need to be ironed out. However, this is great news for Barca fans. Just getting to the point of the two sides talking should be welcomed news.
