"The contract will be signed in the coming weeks, when Messi will return to the team for preseason training," said the club in a statement. "The club is very happy with the contract and adherence to Messi, the best player in history, who led the team to an era of extraordinary success."
Currently Messi is enjoying a honeymoon. He joined the club's famous La Masia in Barcelona at the age of 13 years, moving from native club Newell's Old Boys, which is located in Rosario.
In the subsequent 17 years, the team became the champion of the club, scoring 507 goals in 583 matches since his debut in 2004. The Argentine superstar is also the top scorer in La Liga history with 349 goals. Messi's new contract is reportedly worth 500 thousand pounds ($ 645 thousand) in a week that ties him to the club until he's 34 years old.
