Lionel Messi has a 90% chance of staying at Barcelona next season.

The Argentine recently kicked up a fuss club after the Champions League semi final defeat to Bayern Munich but it seems that he is ready to change his stance now.

The player’s father, who is also his agent, has spoken to the Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu and it seems that discussions between the two parties have been amicable.

It will be interesting to see if the Argentine decides to stay at the club next season.

Messi is not just Barcelona’s best player, he’s also a footballing icon. Losing him would have been a catastrophe for Barcelona.

The Spanish giants are going through a rough patch right now and they need to hold on to their best players.

Ever since Messi announced that he is leaving the club, the fans have been protesting outside the stadium in huge numbers.

Barcelona must do everything in their power to keep him at the club in order to appease the fans and give the team a chance to win the top honours next season.

Messi has been carrying the team for the last couple of seasons this departure would have weakened the Barcelona squad severely.

The player has been linked with a move to the Premier League but his reported suitors Manchester City will have to pay his massive release clause if they are to lure him away from Spain this summer.

He could be reunited with his former manager Pep Guardiola if that happens.
