‘Messi can be convinced to stay by a winning Barca’
    2020-09-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LIONEL MESSI can be convinced to stay put by a winning Barcelona, Sergi Roberto said Monday, with there still time for the Camp Nou giants to tempt an iconic figure into penning fresh terms.

As things stand, six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi has less than 12 months left to run on his current contract.

The 33-year-old had intended to break free before entering that final year, with the Argentine superstar expressing a desire to leave on the back of a disappointing 2019-20.

His path was quickly blocked and Messi revealed in an exclusive interview with Goal that he would not be entering into a legal dispute with Barca.

The 2020-21 season has been opened in positive fashion by Barca, with a convincing 4-0 win recorded over Villarreal in the team’s first competitive outing under Ronald Koeman.

Roberto hopes domestic and continental success can be built from this point.

“I hope as the days pass he’ll begin to feel better and we can count on Leo to win trophies,” Roberto told ARA of a fellow La Masia academy graduate.

“In the end, it’s like when you split from your wife or your best friend. They are complicated processes. Now it’s up to his teammates to make him feel wanted.”

On the stunning saga that saw Messi push for the exits, Roberto added: “I didn’t know anything. And when it came out in the news I couldn’t believe that Leo didn’t want to stay here.

“I wish it wasn’t like that. With him, we’re stronger and I’m delighted that he’s staying in the end.”

While Messi remains in Catalunya for now, he will be free to speak with any interested parties from January.

Roberto is looking for Barca to state their case for an extension before then, with it still possible that the one-club man could agree to prolong his association with the Liga giants.

“He said he’s only staying for one more year but, if we play well and we win trophies, who knows if he’ll change his mind?” (SD-Agencies)
