Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu wants everyone to calm down as he has no concerns about Lionel Messi’s future.

Barcelona president Bartomeu is extremely confident that Lionel Messi will be at the Camp Nou for some time yet.

Messi has just won an unprecedented sixth Ballon d’Or trophy and Bartomeau feels there is still more to come from the Argentine.

While there was no update on a new contract, Messi will apparently play on for the Catalonians.

Speaking to Marca, Bartomeu was relaxed and wants others to do the same.

He said:

“Be calm.”

“Messi will be here for a while.”

” He has a contract and he’ll play much more.”

“The renewal is another matter.”

“Now we’ve just enjoyed seeing Leo win his sixth Ballon d’Or and I think there will be a lot more.”
