'Will there be something better than Barcelona for Messi?' – Abidal enters contract debate at Camp Nou

Lionel Messi is yet to commit to a new contract at Barcelona, but Eric Abidal is not convinced that there would be “something better” for the iconic Argentine away from Camp Nou.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner continues to head towards free agency in Catalunya and will be making no decision on his future until the 2020-21 campaign comes to a close.

Abidal, a former team-mate of the mercurial Argentine, is among those keeping a close eye on a long-running saga and is eager to see how it plays out after several months of intense speculation.
