Barcelona are hopeful superstar captain Lionel Messi has not played his last El Clasico for the LaLiga giants, said director Guillermo Amor.
Messi is out of contract at the end of the season and his future with Barca is far from certain amid strong links to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.
New Barca president Joan Laporta remains determined to re-sign Messi, who has spent his entire senior career at Camp Nou.
Amor was asked about Messi’s future after Barca lost Saturday’s Clasico 2-1 at Real Madrid.
We have eight matches ahead to achieve our objective of winning la Liga. I have no doubt that our team will fight until the end. Visca el Barça!
— Joan Laporta Estruch
