Messi To Sign New Five-Year Barcelona Contract

Lionel Messi is reportedly close to signing a new five-year contract at Barcelona, the club he has represented all his career.

But the 34-year-old, who is currently a free agent, will have to take a pay cut if he wants to continue playing for Barca.

League president Javier Tebas warned that the Blaugrana could not legally register Messi without significantly reducing their salary costs, with the likes of Junior Firpo, Jean-Clair Todibo, Carles Alena and Juan Miranda all subsequently sold to raise extra funds.

According to reports, Messi has also agreed to take a 50% wage cut in order to re-sign for Barca as they prepare to announce his resigning in the next few weeks.
