According to several journalists, the extension of Lionel Messi to Barça is very, very well underway. The 33-year-old Argentine striker is expected to sign a new contract until June 2023.
The hypothesis had grown thicker in recent months, with the change of presidency at the club, and even more in recent days with the arrival of Sergio Agüero, a player to whom he is relatively close. This time, the extension of Lionel Messi (33) at Barça would be imminent.
According to the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, generally well informed, the Catalan club have only a few details to settle before signing a new contract with the Argentine until June 2023, that is to say for the next two seasons. The Blaugrana leaders would be “confident” since the last exchanges with the six-fold Golden Ball.

A future departure for Inter Miami already negotiated?
Tancredi Palmeri, Romano’s compatriot, goes further by speaking of an agreement already reached for a two-year contract at Barça and then two years at Inter Miami in MLS – the assembly is not very clear – with a annual salary of 35 million euros net, 53 less than currently.
Very close to a departure last summer, and even a standoff with his club, Lionel Messi comes out of a season with 38 goals and 14 assists in 47 appearances. The Pulga is not finished.
