Barça and Leo Messi have reached an agreement in principle for the renewal of the Argentine. The agreement that has been reached includes a five-year contract. Although there had been a lot of talk in recent weeks about the possibility of signing for two before embarking on a new adventure in MLS with Inter Miami, finally, both parties have seen with good eyes extending the relationship during a period of a long time.
Leo Messi sees himself with the strength and energy to continue wearing the Barça shirt at the highest level for five more years, something that the club shares. The player, who had planned to undertake new projects three seasons from now, looks forward to continuing at the Camp Nou and ruling out, for the time being, taking the final step to abandon the Blaugrana discipline.
The ’10’ of Barça has agreed to lower his current record by 50%. He has accepted the conditions that Barça has imposed because he understands that the economic situation of the club is very complicated and he must be the first to set an example. In fact, money was never a problem in the negotiation. Yes, it was the issue of taxation, a delicate matter because neither party wants to take the wrong step.
In this sense, it is not expected that the announcement will be made in the next few hours because there is complexity when writing all the details. The announcement is scheduled to take place at the end of July,
Everything looks very good, although the player, who is on vacation, needs to finish reviewing everything and give the go-ahead, something that nobody fears because the principle of agreement is firm.
The contract termination clause will be 350 million euros.
