Lionel Messi is said to have returned to Barcelona in order to sign a new deal with the club.

The Argentine’s contract with the Spanish giants expired at the end of June, but the two sides have reached an agreement on a new term.

According to SPORT, Barcelona were convinced that its star player would agree to new terms this summer, and he’s already back in Spain, ready to sign a new contract in the coming weeks.

Messi was earning £500,000 per week before agreeing to take a 50% wage cut in order to extend his contract at the Nou Camp for another five years. This is due to the fact that the Spanish club is cash-strapped as a result of the coronavirus outbreak and needs to balance its finances.

To stay within LaLiga’s stringent pay restriction, the Catalan giants must reduce their wage costs.

During the unveiling of new signing, Memphis Depay last week, Barcelona president Joan Laporta insisted that talks were progressing.

‘The player has always said he wants to stay on and we are making good progress with the negotiations,’ he told the club’s official website.

‘(Rafael) Yuste and (Mateu) Alemany are working very hard. What we all want is for Messi to stay at Barca. To stay for a lot of years and play alongside such talented footballers as Depay.

‘We are very satisfied with the attitude being shown by both parties, which an operation like this needs. Leo is on holiday right now, but he has a whole team working to get him a contract that suits everyone.’

Barcelona has also added Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia, and Emerson Royal during the summer transfer season, in addition to Depay.
