Father of Lionel Messi is meeting with Barcelona officials today to discuss his contract.

An agreement has been in place for several days over a five-year deal, with Messi currently a free agent.

Mundo Deportivo says Jorge Messi will meet face-to-face with top-level Barca officials today to finalise the agreement.

The contract will take Messi up to 39 years of age, with a playing agreement to run to when he is 37.

The final two years will cover Messi when he is expected to move to Miami, where he will be employed as a Barca ambassador.
