Barcelona have secured a league and cup double already this season.
But a shock Champions League exit to Roma in the quarter finals means Barcelona’s season is being classed as a failure by many of the board.
Last month, Ernesto Valverde was left fighting for his job after reports in Spain suggested the former Athletic Bilbao boss was facing the axe.
But now it appears Barcelona bosses are set to fund the 54-year-old with a summer spending spree.
And according to Diario Gol, Messi has requested that Bayern star Joshua Kimmich is one of the new arrivals at the Nou Camp.
The German star has thrived since the retirement of Philipp Lahm at the Bundesliga outfit and would command a high fee if he was to leave the Allianz Arena this summer.
But Diario Gol claim Messi is desperate for Kimmich’s arrival due to the poor performances of summer signing Nelson Semedo.
The former Benfica star has failed to convince Barcelona fans since his €30m (£26m) move.
