Lionel Messi has agreed to stay at Spanish club Barcelona after cutting his salary by 50 percent.
According to Diario Sport, he will sign a five-year contract. According to the new agreement, Messi’s salary will be reduced by 50 percent.
But despite that, the report claims that Messi will sign a five-year deal.
According to the Catalan newspaper El Sportiu, an agreement was reached between Messi and Barcelona on Wednesday
. But the legal process must be completed before the official announcement can be made, according to Spanish online Mark.
After the contract expired on June 30, 2021, Messi is now a ‘pre-agent’. Messi is on leave after Argentina won the Copa AmErica 28 years later and has yet to comment on the deal.
Barcelona president John Laporta has repeatedly said that Messi will sign a new contract with Barcelona. The final decision on the new deal will take a few days or will be known by the end of this month, Marca said.
