Lionel Messi’s Barcelona future is currently hanging by a thread following reports that he will not renew his contract at the club where he has played all his life.

According to Dario Marca, “There has been a radical turnaround in the case of Lionel Messi’s renewal with Barcelona, with recent information being that the deal was close to being announced, yet a blockbuster revelation has suggested that Barcelona will now not be able to re-sign the Argentine,” claims the Madrid-based paper.

This news comes in stark contrast with previous reports, which claimed that an investment made by the company CVC into La Liga would make it easier for the Catalans to stay under the salary cap with Messi taking a 50% pay cut.

This new report says that while the cash injection would help, it would still keep the situation quite fraught in terms of the wage bill.

And one big complication is that were La Liga to accept the cash injection, the big teams would be forced to abandon the European Super League concept. This is something that Real Madrid and Barcelona are resistant to doing.

This means that, according to MARCA, we are left with “a situation whereby Barcelona extending Messi’s contract and moving forward with the Super League plans are impossible to do together.
