Messi hits 3 as Barcelona wallop Guardiola's Man City

Barcelona will offer further long-term contracts for their established stars, including Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, according to sporting director Albert Soler.

Soler was speaking alongside technical secretary Robert Fernandez at a news conference to mark the conclusion of a transfer window where the Spanish champions were busy both in terms of new arrivals and securing key performers.

Neymar, Sergio Busquets and Javier Mascherano all penned extended deals at Camp Nou and Soler is keen to build on this work.

Along with designs on fresh terms for midfielder Ivan Rakitic, Barca are eager to tie the remaining parts of their stellar attacking triumvirate down.

“We have closed 22 transactions, with three renewals of Mascherano, Busquets and Neymar, which are all very important.

“The duty we have now is to renew Rakitic, Suarez and then Messi. The club does not stop.
“Messi and [Andres] Iniesta will stay here until they want to. They are our emblem. We want them to finish their careers here.”
