Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has agreed to pen a new deal at his boyhood club barely a year after strong speculations that he was going to depart the club for Manchester City.

Africa Today News, New York understands that the 34-year-old’s existing deal is due to expire later this week, throwing up a scenario where the Argentine could walk away from Camp Nou.

However, the return of president Joan Laporta has coincided with a change of heart from Messi, who requested a transfer away from the Catalan giants during 2020.
