By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDWATCHDOG) – Lionel Messi is believed to have agreed a new deal at Barcelona that will see him join David Beckham’s Inter Miami side for two years.
The Barcelona icon was close to leaving the club last summer, and his future is once again uncertain with a contract to extend his time at the Nou Camp still yet to be finalised.
However, according to Sport, a new deal is close, and will see him spend another two seasons at Barcelona before moving to America to star for Beckham’s club.
It’s reported Messi will spent two seasons in Miami, before returning to Spain and becoming a strategic partner at Barcelona with an off-field role as part of the ten-year deal, such as a global ambassador.
The 33-year-old will take a significant pay cut in the new contract, but the wide-ranging nature of the deal appears enough to have convinced him to once again commit his future to Barcelona.
Messi hinted at the nature of the deal earlier this year, when he revealed his wish to play elsewhere while still keeping his links to the club he made his debut for in 2003.
‘My plan is to give all I can for the club at the moment,’ Messi told Spanish TV station La Sexta.
