Barcelona and Lionel Messi are close to agreeing a contract renewal, which takes up a pretty unusual formula as it includes a transfer away and ambassadorial duties.
According to Catalunya Radio, Messi has been offered a deal that runs for over seven or eight years at the very least.
Catalunya Radio claim the deal would see Messi extend his time at the Catalan outfit by two years, then he’d be granted his desire of a transfer to the MLS where he’d also act as Barcelona’s US ambassador.
It’s added that the third stage of the contract renewal would see Messi on a five-year term as a member of the Barcelona staff.
The report details that Messi is yet to respond to the offer as he waits to learn more details of the club’s project and plans.

Catalunya Radio insist that the financial terms of the proposed deal could be explained by Joan Laporta on Friday, which is when the newly-crowned president (second term) will hold his first press conference.
