Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu has said that Lionel Messi will end his career at the club amid reports that the Argentine playmaker is yet to sign a new contract to extend his stay at the Nou Camp.

It was previously reported that the striker indefinitely put contract talks on hold because of issues between the players and the board. But Bartomeu has told Spanish network Movistar that Messi has spoken of his desire to sign new deal and end his career at the club.

‘Messi has said he will end his working and footballing life at Barca,’ Bartomeu said after his side beat Villarreal 4-1 on Sunday, July 5.

‘I’m not going to explain the details because we are focused on the competition and we are negotiating with many players but Messi has explained to us that he wants to stay and so we’re going to enjoy him for much longer.’

The 33-year-old Messi, who signed his last contract in 2017, joined the club through the youth ranks in 2001. He has spent his entire professional career with Barcelona, where he has won a club-record 34 trophies, including ten La Liga titles, four UEFA Champions League titles and six Copas del Rey. He has also won a record six Ballon d’Or awards and a record six European Golden Shoes.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed terms on a five-year deal worth £340,000-a-week with Jadon Sancho.

 

The England international and Borussia Dortmund forward is on the verge of joining United with the two clubs in advanced talks over a deal worth £108million.

 

According to BILD, Sancho has now put pen to paper on personal terms and all that needs to be determined before the deal can go through is the structure of the transfer.

Other reports claimed United would pay £63m upfront and then £27m and £18m over the next two summers.

 

Negotiations are still ongoing but are expected to be finished within the next week, with Dortmund set to make a staggering profit having signed the winger for just £8m from United’s arch-rivals Manchester City in 2017.

 

A fee of £108m for the 20-year-old would see him become the most expensive player bought by an English club, topping the £89m Manchester United paid to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

Sancho registered 17 goals and 17 assists across 32 Bundesliga games last season.
