Messi Offered Record Salary?

Despite Lionel Messi being unhappy at FC Barcelona currently, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner might be tempted to commit his future to the club following a new contract offer that includes a record salary.

Reports in Spain suggest that the Argentine has been offered a new deal by the Catalan club, a month after his fallout with sporting director Eric Abidal.

The spat led to much speculation over his future, especially as the 32-year-old has the option of terminating his contract at the club before the end of every season.

Perhaps Messi feeling unsettled has forced Barcelona in action, with the Spanish giants having reportedly now offered their record goalscorer a staggering new weekly wage of £865 000 (R17.3 million) a week.

That is according to El Confidencial, who claimed the deal offered to the striker could see him stay at the Blaugrana until June 2023.

Amid reports of his unhappiness at the Camp Nou, Messi had been linked with a move away from Barcelona, with clubs such as Juventus and Manchester City said to be potential suitors.
