Newly-elected president Joan Laporta has acknowledged that he is keen for Lionel Messi to remain at Barcelona.
Messi's future at Barcelona is a constant topic of debate now that less than three months remain on the Argentine's contract.
Laporta has pledged to do everything possible to retain the services of the forward, something that he reiterated late on Sunday.
Speaking after his presidential victory, Laporta said: "Today marks 20 years since a boy named Leo Messi debuted with Barcelona's Infantil B [U12-13] team," "Seeing the best player in the world come to vote with his son is an example of what we've said.
"Leo loves Barcelona. That's the reflection of it. The best player in the world loves Barcelona. Hopefully that will help him to stay at Barcelona. That's what we want."
