Reports says Messi is asking for £825,000 a week deal which is £300,000 more than Cristiano Ronaldo but Barcelona cannot afford that much value.
Messi has scored 496 goals for the club since making his debut in 2004 for Barcelona and the club president is hopping that he will stay at Barca until retirement.
He has been offered £85m from an unnamed club (NOT DISCLOSED) to turn down Barca’s offers and leave for Free in 2018.That fee would then be paid to the superstar on top of his wages when he joins.
Manchester City are believed to be willing to offer £500,000-a-week to try and lure the star to the Premier League.
