Lionel Messi is allegedly close to signing a new contract with Barcelona
that will see him play for Inter Miami for two seasons before retiring.
Since attempting and failing to force a Camp Nou exit last summer,
the six-time Ballon d’Or winner’s future has been mired in uncertainty.
In Catalonia, though, a change of guard has persuaded Messi to stay,
with Joan Laporta taking over as president and Sergio Aguero joining the squad.
Messi has reportedly agreed terms with Barcelona, according to Spanish publication Sport,
and confirmation is anticipated soon.Messi is expected to stay with Barcelona for two more seasons as part of the long-term deal,
before spending the final two seasons of his career in Miami.
Messi is expected to return to Camp Nou and serve as a global ambassador behind the scenes for the next six years.
PSG and Manchester City were previously thought to be the
frontrunners to recruit the Argentina international.
