For the first time since 2000 Messi doesn't have a contract at Barcelona, a whole 7,504 days after his first contract with the club was signed, on a napkin no less, the forward's contractual link to the club has ended.



His current deal lapsed at midnight in Spain, and no extension has yet been announced

With his most recent deal running until June 30, Messi has become a free agent at midnight, as June turned into July.

Joan Laporta has been working hard to convince Messi to renew and the new club president wanted to sign a contract with the Argentine before the most recent one expired, but it wasn't to be.

This doesn't mean Messi is leaving the club, as those in charge at the Camp Nou believe he will put pen to paper on a new deal and continue to wear the blue and red colours. At this moment in time, though, Messi is not a Barcelona player.

The club's financial problems prevented a new deal from being signed before the June 30 expiry date. The relationship between Laporta and Messi's father is very good, but there are several aspects of the new contract that still need to be ironed out. An agreement could be reached soon, perhaps in a few days, but it hasn't been established as of yet.

Laporta, who has urged fans to remain calm, wants Messi to sign a new deal as soon as possible. He doesn't like that the forward isn't a Barcelona player, even if it's just for a few days, while sponsors don't like this either, both existing ones and potential new partners.
