After the conclusion of the ‘wedding of the century’, Leo Messi continues to make news as FC Barcelona confirm Messi’s agreement to continue with the club until 2021 AD. FC Barcelona have finally confirmed their Ace will stay as long as his career goes on.
‘The club is very happy with both the renewal and the commitment of Messi, the best player in history, who has played his full professional career at Barça and has led the team to an era of extraordinary success, the likes of which has never been seen in world football.’ The club’s official website reported.
Messi’s decision to renew represents a welcome boost for new Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde who can now set about strengthening a team which surrendered domestic dominance to Real Madrid last season and were knocked out of the Champions League at the quarter final stage. This also will ease the pressure off Barca board and they now can focus on the transfer market and keep an eye on the player’s they’ve been looking for.
Messi is currently on his honeymoon after getting married to Antonella Roccuzzo last Friday but he will sign his new contract when he returns next week for pre-season training.
