The Argentina international’s current agreement at Camp Nou is due to expire at the end of June, and he continues to be linked with a move to Manchester City on a free transfer.
However, new Barca president Joan Laporta is reportedly becoming increasingly confident of keeping hold of the 33-year-old, with contract talks due to take place in the near future.
Koeman has once again reiterated that the La Liga outfit are working hard to keep the South American, but the club’s manager is currently focusing on Monday’s clash with Real Valladolid.
“It’s (Messi’s future) a very important issue. We are going to do everything we possibly can to ensure that he stays. But right now, what matters is tomorrow’s game. Things regarding the future are up to the president. We just focus on our games,” Koeman told reporters.
Messi has again been in impressive form at club level during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring 29 times and registering 13 assists in 37 appearances in all competitions.
