Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Farre says the priority must be to keep hold of Lionel Messi.

Messi's current deal expires in June and there's been no movement regarding a new contract.

Farre told Esporte3: "Doubting what Messi has given us is even in bad taste. Messi has to be offered a life project. We have to turn Messi into Barça's Jordan. We are working to offer Messi a project in the institutional life of the club.

"We have already spoken with Messi's environment. We have a proposal. The offer is not economic. Leo has already made a lot of money.

"It is a love story. I am sure I have a project that will convince Messi."
