Agrees to new contract with Barca Messi signed a new five-year contract with Barcelona, ESPN reported Wednesday.
Impact Messi has technically been out of contract since the end of June, but the chances of him leaving Barcelona were never high no matter how much posturing came from elsewhere. A large wage cut has likely been made as well by Messi, though it still can't have been low enough to jeopardize his commitment to this club. Once an official announcement has been put out, Messi's extended future with the Catalan club will be confirmed.
