Barcelona extends Messi’s contract
Barcelona on Wednesday extended the contract of star striker Lionel Messi until June 30, 2021 — just days after he wed his childhood sweetheart in Argentina.
“The deal will be signed in the coming weeks, when Messi returns to the team for preseason training,” the club said in a statement.
The club gave no details about the contract that will keep the Argentinian megastar and five-time Ballon d’Or winner at Camp Nou until he’s 34.
Spain’s Marca sports daily reported on Tuesday that the deal includes a $340 million termination clause.
