Pique & Messi set to sign extensions

Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique will sign new contracts at Barcelona before the World Cup starts next month.

Catalan daily Sport has claimed that the Blaugrana duo will put pen to paper on extensions before June, and possibly as soon as next week.

Messi’s contract extension has been rumbling on for months, with the Argentina international insistent that he earns more than Neymar.

And the next extension, which will run until 2019, could see him earn as much as €20m per season.

Pique meanwhile, is set to stay at Camp Nou until 2018 with his new deal.
