has been widely discussed as his contract approaches expiration by next year and talks were seemingly progressing slowly,

There was further proof as in an interview with Tencent Sports published by ESPN,
the Argentinian said he wanted to finish his career at Barca,
the club he joined as a 13-year-old and enjoyed a trophy-laden career with winning
eight La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns.
It is a widely known argument that Messi is the world’s greatest ever player after claiming the Ballon d’Or a record five times.
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo could equal that record after the Portuguese captain helped Real retain their Champions League title.
He is a phenomenal player who has many qualities that year after year he improves and that is why he is one of the best in the world.
