The departure of Lionel Messi was a hard blow for the Blaugrana at an economic level, but the greatest damage will be seen at a sporting level. Barcelona lost the best player in its history, its scoring star and its leader. There is no way to replace him, but there is a way to find solutions to remain a competitive team capable of winning important titles.
Joan Laporta, president of the entity, is clear that it is time to think about the future and seek solutions so that the Barcelona can compete against the rest of the best teams in Europe. And he already has a plan to give continuity to the team and be competitive for the next decade, the main objective.
Joan Laporta’s goal
Pedri, who comes from having a sensational season in every way to the point of becoming an invaluable piece for the Spanish team in the Eurocup, ends his contract in the summer of 2022 so Barcelona will make him a millionaire offer to convince him to stay . They see him as the next big star of the club’s midfield. A key piece in the future.
The case of Ansu Fati is similar. Despite the injury that took him off the courts for a good part of the season, he is a key player in the team’s construction and one of the most interesting young talents at an offensive level in all of Europe. His contract also ends in the summer of 2022 and he also has important offers from other teams, but everything seems to indicate that he will stay.
