Lionel Messi’s contract is set to expire next year in June, however, Barcelona could renew terms with the player if they sign these three targets.

From January onwards, Lionel Messi will be legally permitted to discuss terms with any interested club and can even agree to sign a contract. To avoid this situation, Barcelona must build a winning project that would convince Leo Messi that his final few years of professional football at the top tier will not go in vain.

One of the many reasons why the 33-year-old wanted to leave the club last summer was due to the lack of ambition at the club under the former board. Messi believed that there was no plan or project in place to take the sporting institution forward and instead the club focused on personal business activites.

Which is why Leo Messi wanted to sign for Manchester City who has a plan in place to win the UEFA Champions League. However, with Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board of directors now gone, Messi could possibly renew provided that either Victor Font or Joan Laporta build him a winning project.

Here are three players that either Font or Laporta might want to sign next summer to improve the current squad.
