Messi to sign new Barca deal

568

Six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi, is set to sign a new five-year contract at Barcelona and take an incredible 50 per cent wage cut.

Messi has spent his entire career to date on Barca’s books, having initially made his debut for the club as a teenager in 2004.

But he became a free agent at the start of July after reaching the end of his contract.

Messi earned €550 million over the course of his last five-year contract at Camp Nou, which equates to around €75m per season.

However, Barca were unable to hand the 34-year-old similarly lucrative renewal terms after exceeding La Liga’s wage limit at the end of the 2020-21 campaign .
