Former Barcelona captain, Xavi Hernandez believes Lionel Messi has signed a contract extension at the club.
Bartomeu also insists a contract has been signed, however, no official announcement has been made.
Now, Xavi Hernandez, the former team-mate of Messi at Barcelona, has stated that in his opinion, the Argentina skipper has penned a new deal.
“We are not sure as the Barca president said yes (he has). But for me, it’s done. Leo Messi needs Barca and especially Barca needs Messi. It would be very good for Barcelona that Messi stayed there for his entire career,” said Xavi.
“As a member of Barcelona, I would like Messi to remain at Barcelona for his entire career. Because we have a better chance of winning titles if he stays at Barca. He is the best player in the history of the game,” he added.
