However, Laporta has reiterated that he is the best candidate to ensure Messi remains at the club for the remainder of his career.
Laporta told reporters on Friday, in quotes that have been carried by Marca: “I will make him an offer at an economic level within the possibilities of what Barça can offer. I know that Leo is not guided by money, and I will make him a very competitive sports proposal, in which he sees himself winning titles.
“I would love for the club’s 125th anniversary to coincide with the new Camp Nou and with Messi in the team. My dream would be this.”
