Messi Signs New Deal

Argentina superstar Lionel Messi has signed a new and improved long-term contract with Barcelona.

The 22-year-old forward has committed his future to the Catalan giants until the summer of 2016.

The talented playmaker helped Barca to UEFA Champions League glory in May and was named runner-up to Cristiano Ronaldo in last year's Fifa World Player of the Year award.
Messi's current deal was due to expire in 2014, and that has now been extended by an additional two years while his minimum release clause has increased from €150million (£135m) to €250m (£225m).
The 22-year-old is now committed to the European champions for what will likely be the best years of his career, and wants to end it there too.
"I want to spend all my career here, in Barcelona, if it's possible," he told the club's official website.
