Cristiano Ronaldo agreed a reported £365,000-a-week five-year contract with Real Madrid last month, but Bartomeu claims Barcelona will top that to prevent Messi from departing the Camp Nou, with his current deal expiring in 2018.
Messi has been linked with moves to the Abu Dhabi-financed Manchester City in the Premier League while Hebei China Fortune, managed by Manuel Pellegrini in the Chinese Super League, are apparently willing to offer the Argentina player an astonishing £500m-a-year to move to the Far East.
“There are no doubts that sooner or later we will close (Messi’s) renewal,” Bartomeu said at a media conference on Tuesday as he reflected on 2016..
“I hope that he ends his sporting career here, and after that I’m sure he will remain linked to the club. He is without doubt the best player in the history of the game, and we will make a huge effort to renew his contract.
