Surprise Clause In Messi's New Contract Revealed?

With Lionel Messi seemingly set to sign a new deal at FC Barcelona, a surprise clause that is reportedly included in the contract appears to have been revealed.

Messi's Decision Is Made

According to Marca, the 34-year-old's new deal in Spain includes an exit clause that can be triggered after two years. 

Reports across Europe suggest that Messi will pen a new five-year contract with the Catalan giants, although he seemingly has the opportunity to leave whenever he decides to after the first 24 months have been fulfilled. 

It is believed the 2021 Copa America winner could decide to take his career to the MLS in the future, with the Argentine having previously hinted he is interested in one day living in the US. 

Messi has technically been a free agent and legally able to join another club since the expiration of his previous contract in June, although Barca president Joan Laporta has always believed the six-time Ballon d'Or winner will recommit to the Blaugrana. 

With these latest developments, the forward is set for an 18th season in the Catalan giants' first team, after breaking through during the 2004/05 campaign.
