Messi will be 39 at the end of his contract
The six-time world footballer’s signature is still pending, and the club is still waiting for a reaction from La Liga. According to a report in the Argentine sports newspaper, Ole, Messi himself will spend a few days vacation in Miami after winning his first major title with the Argentine national team.
The Esportiu Report is said to be a new five-year working paper – Messi will be 39 at the end of the decade. He is supposed to forfeit 50 percent of his previous earnings. It is said that his last contract so far brought the Argentine about 500 million euros in four years. According to “Esportio”, the new contract should contain an exit clause of 600 million euros – according to the Spanish “Sport”, it should be at 350 million euros. In Messi’s contract, which expired on June 30, there was a clause for 700 million euros.

Messi wanted to leave Barcelona in the summer of 2020
That’s why Messi should also get a five-year contract, according to media reports. It is unlikely that he will.

But he will still be owed a salary, like “Mundo deportivo”, if he is appointed ambassador to the United States, where he will likely end his career as a footballer.
Last summer, Messi wanted to leave FC Barcelona after some follies and low sporting strikes like the disastrous 2:8 bankruptcy in the Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich. This failed due to the exit clause and the veto of the then president. By the end of his last contract with the club thus far, the two parties were unable to agree on an extension. With 35 titles, 672 goals and 778 games, Messi has already made history at the 121-year-old club whose championship season kicks off on August 15 with a home game against Real Sociedad San Sebastian.
