BARCELONA have at last affirmed another agreement for hotshot Lionel Messi which will keep him at the club until 2021.

The club had already expressed in July that Messi had marked an agreement, yet no mark had affirmed the arrangement.

Presently, with an amazing €700m (AU$1.1 billion) discharge condition, Messi will be contracted until he’s 34 years of age.

The Spanish goliaths had declared in the mid year that Messi had submitted his future to the club, with fan rage over Neymar’s flight, yet the Argentine had not marked the new arrangement, with his current contract set to lapse in 2018.

“FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi marked on Saturday morning another agreement that will keep the Argentinian hotshot at the club through the 2020/21 season,” read a club proclamation. “The buyout proviso was set at 700 million euros ($835 million).”
