The Argentina attacker made his condition critical for Barca to exercise before he agree to sign new contract in the team.
Lionel Messi’s contract is nearly ending and the team managerial crew may possibly want him to offer the team a new sign, but the star outlined his needs for the team to serve.
Messi vows to sign a new deal when Barcelona agree to bring in two new players among which is The PSG’s Kylian Mbappe.
The star believes that his contributions toward the team may continue only when the team offer him a support in the attacking midfield line by signing atleast 4 set of players in this January transfer.
And interestingly, the 32-year-old who is La Liga league top scorer with 13 goals, has told Barcelona to sign a couple of players into key positions in the January and next summer.
According to reports from Spain, the Argentine forward has tied his new contract to the condition that Barcelona get a player as good as Jordi Alba.
Messi also wants Barca to sign a potential replacement for aging Sergio Busquets to complement Arturo Vidal and Frenkie de Jong’s works in the midfield.
The Argentine captain, who won his sixth Ballon d’Or award recently, also wants a potential forward like Mbappe who can bring more aggression and efficiency to his work in the attack-line.
But with the Frenchman heavily linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona will have to look for potential stars like Liverpool ace Mohammed Salah and Jodan Sancho.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has been named “sportsperson of the decade” by William Hill less than a month he clinched Ballon d’Or gong for the sixth time record.
The Barcelona star enjoyed a remarkable football year last season under Ernesto Valverde, guiding the Catalans to the domestic double.
In recognition of his incredible individual brilliance, the Argentine forward was awarded FIFA the Best gong in September.
