Leo Messi’s future is a big concern for those in Barcelona. The club has been renewing and extending his contract year after year, and it seems that he is the team’s “hot property.” His next contract, if people are still keeping count, will be his eighth with the club.
Barcelona’s President, Josep Maria Bartomeu, who has been to New York City recently to open the club’s office in the U.S., has confirmed that his team is looking into renewing contracts of their top players. Of course, the Argentine soccer superstar is one of the players they plan to keep for a long time.

Messi joined the club in 2001, and has represented the team for more than 350 times. In that time, he has scored an amazing 314 goals. While the five-time Ballon d’Or awardee is in contract with Barcelona until 2018, Bartomeu is stern with his statement that Messi has a place with the team for as long as he wants to play.
The team is confident that the 29 year-old Messi will shoot down offers from other clubs and will stay loyal to Barcelona. According to the club, they have “no limit for Messi,” and will always be supportive of his game.
