Last week, it emerged that a clause in Messi's current contract with the Blaugrana, which runs until 2021, allows him to terminate his deal and move on for free at the end of each season.

Similar provisions were inserted into the contracts of club legends Andres Iniesta and Xavi, both of whom activated the clauses to leave for clubs in Japan and Qatar, respectively. 

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan giants are said to be unworried by Messi's contract situation, believing that he will remain with the club for the foreseeable future, but are reportedly preparing a new lifetime deal in order to ensure his future stays at the Camp Nou.

Contract negotiations have not yet begun between the player and the club, but are expected to commence in the coming months. 

Messi has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer in the US, and also previously indicated his desire to return to Argentina to play for boyhood club Newell's Old Boys, and Barca are reportedly open to a short-term deal in the future provided he returns to Spain thereafter.
