#1 Lionel Messi
Yes, officially Messi is no longer Barcelona’s player. His contract ran out at the end of June, and he is currently a free agent. However, reports suggest that the player is willing to sign a new contract with the club, and that a contract has already been decided on by the player and the club. The club is now just waiting for the sales of a few players, which will allow them to officially sign Messi to the club again.
Once that is complete, Messi will be able to focus on the season ahead. The Argentine magician had a brilliant season with the Catalans last year, where he managed to score 38 goals in all competitions while providing 14 assists as well. He was undoubtedly the most important player for the Catalans all season long, and he had to consistently score goals, as well as, make a lot of individual plays.
He might be 34 years of age; however, his abilities and work ethics are next to none. He is and always will be Barcelona’s most surreal talent, and he has the ability to turn a game around in an instant. Should the Catalans manage to keep the player, he will most definitely be the most important player next season as well. What is next to impossible for some, is just a regular thing for Messi, and if Barcelona wants to win the La Liga next season, keeping him is a must.
