Madrid: FC Barcelona president Sandro Rosell said it would be an error not to start work on renewing the contract of star striker Lionel Messi.
Messi has already renewed his contract six times in his Barcelona career and his current deal expires in June 2016. But with the best player in the world at the club, Rosell knows that there are no shortage of teams willing to offer massive wages in an attempt to get the Argentinean, reports Xinhua.
"Messi ends his relationship with Barcelona in 2016, which is the same year our mandate ends. As president, I have to think about what could happen, at the moment, there is no meeting planned with his father (who is also his agent), but this is a machine that doesn't stop and the situation could change at any moment," said Rosell on Catalan radio.
