2017: Lionel Messi extends his Adidas boot contract

Lionel Messi updated his Facebook account on Friday (10/02/17) with a picture of himself signing a new football boot contract extension with Adidas. The message he posted - below the image - was simple and to the point:

"¡Feliz de poder seguir colaborando con adidas muchos años más!"

“Happy to continue working with adidas for many more years!”

Lionel Messi originally played in Nike football boots, but eventually signed an Adidas boot deal in 2006. At present, representatives of Messi are conducting ongoing contract discussions with FC Barcelona over extending his playing contract. Messi has been linked with moves to both Manchester United and Manchester City, but most industry insiders expect him to extend his contract with Barcelona and see out his playing days in the Catalonia sunshine.
