According to Marca, negotiations for Lionel Messi’s new contract have reached a point of no return.

The Argentinian is reportedly further away from renewing his contract with Barcelona than ever before and club president Joan Laporta accepts the current situation.

The player’s father and agent, Jorge Messi, met with Barça on Thursday for talks over the deal, but as things stand it is hard to see an agreement between both parties, according to the report.

Catalan outlet RAC1 report that Messi told Barcelona yesterday that he would not sign a new contract with the club and that the Argentine is not convinced about the club’s project or financial situation.
