Ex-Madridista Valdano reveals it a great news that Messi stays with La Liga

There's no certainty over Leo's stay beyond the current season, though.

“I thought he would go to another league and it seems to be that it’s great news that he continues in La Liga,” Jorge Valdano, who represented Real Madrid as a player and a head coach, told Onda Cero of Lionel Messi.

“He’s the best player in the world, not only because of the image he projects but because it is a pleasure to see a player of his type.

“I’ve no idea what’s going to happen as the season goes on, if it’s going to end up in a separation as Leo threatened in that fax or if things can recover.

“It will depend on the president, the results and the will of Leo, who will be 34 next year.”

Despite his desire to quit Barcelona this summer, Messi will spend the 2020/21 season at Camp Nou. The 33-year-old featured in Barca's pre-season friendly against Nastic last week and will remain the Catalans' first captain in the upcoming campaign.

The Argentine, on the other hand, is out of contract next summer and he doesn't seem likely to extend his current deal, at least until he wins the Champions League this term. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
