Messi is under pressure from sponsors to extend his contract

Last week’s reports showed that FC Barcelona had finally reached an agreement with Lionel Messi. However, the deal has not been signed, and the club is growing under pressure from their patrons.

It is no secret that the club has attracted a number of partners due to the presence of the widely known Argentine in the squad. Summer is in full swing and the same sponsors had to halt their plans for upcoming advertising campaigns due to the uncertainty surrounding Macy’s future.

Obviously, no one wants to start making pictures and other content without the stars of the show. Barcelona President John Laporta has insisted that things are progressing well and called for calm and patience. However, sponsors cannot stop their promotions for long.

Fans and club members may be furious, but there is nothing compared to sponsors who do not know if they will be able to work with Messi next season. This puts Barcelona in a precarious position, especially since several sponsors must be renewed later this year.
