Lionel messi should have been incorporated today Barcelona training. It comes from disputing and win the Copa América with Argentina, and in fact Emerson and Agüero have returned today of your vacation. However, not having resolved your contractual situation with Barcelona, the club prefers to wait and do not force their return.
Still, Joan Laporta has put on a deadline to have ‘tied’ completely to the Argentine star: Sunday August 8. That will be the day that Barcelona will play the Joan Gamper trophy before the Juventus of Cristiano Ronaldo and introduce yourself to your fans. At least symbolically, since there will be no audience in the stands.
The signing of the contract Lionel seems very on track, as we have been repeating in all the news that concern this matter. Despite this, a series of cases that allow square the economic situation of Barcelona and thus be able to carry out the agreement with the Argentine.
These ‘hot spots’ are two: the salary adequacy of the players with more importance in the Barça dressing room (I hammered, Busquets, Jordi Alba, …) and the sale of footballers that they don’t count for the club or who have a very high salary (Umtiti, Pjanic, Griezmann, Coutinho …)
These are complex issues and they are costing the club to resolve longer than expected. At the moment, the crack is still on vacation, but if everything goes as Laporta has planned, this week you can finally sign his long-awaited renewal and on Sunday he will be able to play as a Barça player again. Gamper goal for Messi.
