According to Daily Mirror, who cited Spanish sources, the 33-year-old could soon be offered a massive decade-long deal by the Catalan giants.

Messi's current contract in Spain is set to expire on 30 June, less than a year after he tried to force a move away from the club following a fallout with its previous president.

To avoid losing the six-time Ballon d'Or winner, Barcelona are reportedly planning a 10-year contract offer that will see him earn about €239 million (R3.9 billion) over the next four years. 

It is claimed that in 2023, Messi would join David Beckham's MLS franchise Inter Miami in the US before he hanging up his boots in 2025, while the remaining six years will then see the Barcelona captain work as an ambassador for the club.

Messi has admitted in the past that he would like to one day play in the MLS, with this proposed deal offering him that opportunity.

The widely held belief in Spain is that the forward will ultimately pen a new contract with his boyhood club, particularly following the arrival of Argentina colleague and long-time friend Sergio Aguero at the Camp Nou.

Here is where Messi ranked among the highest-paid footballers over the past year:
