LaLiga President Sends Message To Messi

The president of LaLiga, who helped FC Barcelona prevent Lionel Messi from leaving the club last year, has sent the Argentine a message over his future.

Report: Neymar Still Desperate To Reunite With Messi

Messi went close to leaving the Catalans at the start of the season, but his efforts were halted by the then-Blaugrana board and the league itself, who released a statement stating that he was under obligation to stay at the club for one more campaign.

Now, the 33-year-old has just a few months remaining on his contract in Spain, with it still being unclear as to whether he will extend his current deal or move on ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Javier Tebas, LaLiga's president, has now insisted he would advise the six-time Ballon d'Or winner to stay where he is.

"If I were Messi's adviser, I would tell him, 'stay at Barca'," he told AS.

"I want Messi to stay. He is the best player in history.

"If you are thinking about his last years of football, he should continue to be linked to the Barcelona brand.

"He started at Barcelona and I think he should continue at Barca. If I was his adviser, I would tell him he must do everything possible to stay at Barca."

Messi has been strongly linked with transfers to Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in recent months, although Joan Laporta's return as Barca president has led many to believe he could now see out the rest of his career at the Camp Nou.
