La Liga president confirms Lionel Messi has already signed new Barcelona deal

La Liga president confirms Lionel Messi has already signed new Barcelona deal”

LaLiga chief Javier Tebas has confirmed that Argentina star Lionel Messi has signed a new contract at Barcelona but there has been no official confirmation of the deal from the club.

Reports the five-time Ballon d'Or-winner had put pen-to-paper on an extension a day after his wedding were subsequently dismissed after inadvertent revelations by a string of bungling directors.

A summer of turmoil in which the Catalans saw Real Madrid win La Liga and the Champions League before losing Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain was topped off with the new Messi has signed a new deal being retracted. "The deal will be signed in the coming weeks, when Messi returns to the team for pre-season training".

The delay is said have put other European clubs on alert with the Argentina global having enjoyed another impressive start to the 2017-2018 campaign, scoring 16 goals in 17 appearances.

La Liga president Javier Tebas expects to boost its bottom line with a huge new television rights deal as of 2019-2020 that could be worth 2.3 billion euros ($2.7 billion) per year.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu previously said Messi's father, his representative, had already signed the contract and it was just waiting for the player's signature.

Speaking on Tuesday, Tebas said: 'Messi has a contract which has been renewed. "Contracts are official when they are signed and not when it is announced that they have been signed".

"And Messi has signed with Barcelona".

With regards to PSG and City Tebas was blunt: "I don't think they are cheating, I know they are".
