Messi and Barcelona reach final agreement over extension, announcement in coming days


Leo Messi and Barcelona have reached a final agreement over a contract extension, Diario Sport's reliable Lluis Mascaro reports.

The 34-year-old is set to sign a deal until 2026 with a 50% pay cut, it's said. The official announcement is expected to follow in the coming days.

Over intense negotiations with Jorge Messi, Leo's father and agent, the parties have reached common ground. The captain's intention was to continue at Camp Nou ever since Joan Laporta became president.

The only remaining detail is for the club to lower the wage bill so they can register the Argentine for 2021/22 La Liga. The Catalans are currently in talks with several heavyweights over pay cuts, while other players are expected to be offloaded.

Messi is currently on vacation on Ibiza. Leo will not join the pre-season until he puts pen to paper.
