FC Barcelona has reached an agreement to adjust the terms in the contract binding Leo Messi to the club as a professional first team player. The revised and updated contract will be signed over the next few days.

All-time leading goalscorer

The Argentinian is a living legend at FC Barcelona. He has played more games for the first team than any other foreigner (424) and is the club’s all-time highest goalscorer (354). He has scored at least 40 goals in each of the last five seasons, and is just eight goals away from topping Telmo Zarra to become the highest goalscorer in the history of the Spanish first division.

21 titles

These record-breaking stats all helped to lead FC Barcelona to the most successful period in its history. Since he made his debut in 2004/05, Messi has won 21 major titles: 6 Ligas, 3 Champions Leagues, 2 Spanish Cups, 2 Clubs World Cups, 2 European Supercups and 6 Spanish Supercups. And on an individual level he has won four Ballons d’Or, and three Golden Boots and has been top scorer in La Liga three times.

His goals in the Champions League, at the Santiago Bernabéu and most especially at the Camp Nou are memories that Barça fans will cherish forever. And the wonderful thing about it is that there are still many more years of Leo Messi to come!
