Talking to radio broadcaster Cadena SER, Jorge Messi has eased fears of his son departing the Camp Nou, despite being yet to renew.
With rumours circulating about the Argentine forward’s future, his father and agent Jorge Messi has assured FC Barcelona fans that there is “no danger” of his son leaving the Camp Nou, according to Spanish radio station Cadena SER.
On Wednesday, he was reported by the programme ‘El Larguero’ to have said “there is no danger” of Messi Jr leaving Barça, despite being yet to sign a new deal.
The striker’s contract renewal is the chief current concern in the Ciudad Condal, with fears he could run down his present agreement, which expires in 2018.
However, Cadena SER said talks between Barça chiefs and Jorge Messi – are ongoing and are on course.
Although Messi Sr is not currently in Spain, negotiations are understood to be being held via telephone.
