Lionel Messi has agreed to stay at Barcelona on a deal until 2026 that includes reducing his wages to half of his previous salary.

The announcement is dependent on player departures that will allow Barcelona to fund the Argentina captain’s wages.

34 year old Messi, was a free agent after his contract – that reportedly paid him £123m a season – expired on June 30.

He is on holiday after winning the Copa America and the finer details of the contract are yet to be finalized.
