Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has signed a new contract with a buyout clause worth 700m euros (£626m).

The 30-year-old Argentina international’s deal now runs until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Since joining the club at the age of 13, Messi has helped Barcelona win eight Spanish league titles and won the Champions League four times.

Messi, whose previous deal was due to expire next year, has scored 523 goals in 602 appearances for the club.

He was presented with his fourth European Golden Shoe on Friday after scoring 37 times in the Spanish league last season.

The club had announced in July that Messi had agreed to sign a new deal, after he had reportedly rejected an initial offer in May.

In a statement, the club said Messi “still has a lot more to give, which is music to the ears of all Barca fans who will get to continue marvelling at his greatness”. (BBC)
