Barcelona have announced Lionel Messi’s contract renovation on Wednesday with the buy-out clause likely to rise to €300million (£264m).
Messi had left Barca supporters nervously trying to read the signs coming out of his camp as his current deal was allowed to run down to June 2018.
But that wait is finally over with the player committing his future to the club he joined as a 13-year-old.
The new contract will run until 2021, with the option of an extra year and Barcelona have announced it on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old all-time club-record goalscorer has been linked to the Premier League with last year’s tax evasion case almost sending him into the arms of Manchester City but Barcelona have renewed vows with their greatest-ever player.
Messi got married to long-term partner Antonella Roccuzzo last Friday and he is still on honeymoon in the Caribbean but when he returns to training next week he will sign his new deal.
His new net salary will go up to £26.4m per season, putting him on over £500,000 per week.
