Barcelona are close to settling on a new contract with Lionel Messi, but his extension could have repercussions for the rest of the team. The Argentine maestro is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world, and his contract extension may force Barcelona to trade some of their other elite players.
If Lionel Messi signs a new deal, according to Catalan daily L’Esportiu, Antoine Griezmann could be the next superstar to leave. Last season, the 30-year-old Frenchman had a good season with Barcelona, scoring 13 goals and helping on another seven.
