Report: Lionel Messi ‘To Sign New Five-year Barcelona Contract Next Month’

share on:

Lionel Messi will sign his new contract at Barcelona next month, reports Spanish radio show El Larguero.

The Argentinian’s current deal at the Camp Nou expires at the end of next season.

His contractual situation has prompted speculation over his future but that looks set to be quashed soon.

According to El Larguero, Jorge Messi, the forward’s father and agent, will travel to Barcelona in May to finalise the deal, which will extend the 29-year-old’s stay at the club until the summer of 2022.

Messi was not part of the Barcelona side that saw off Granada 4-1 on the week due to a suspension.

But recent reports suggested he will be in line to earn as much as £35million-a-year after putting pen to paper.

In February, Jorge fled the Spanish city after “no progress” had been made on talks.

But now it looks like Messi will be rolling in money – especially after signing a lifetime deal with boot-maker Adidas earlier this year.

And it is a relief for Barca, who have now tied down striker partners Neymar and Luis Suarez too in new deals.
