The Catalan club's spokesman Joesp Vives confirmed in May that the club are very close to agreeing a deal with the five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

Messi's contract expires next summer, although reports in Spain suggest he is close to agreeing a three-year extension.

'To strive to achieve and get the most titles that we can, because in football, we don't know what could happen in the year to come.

The full-back left the club back in 2011 to move to the Emirates, but Ernesto Valverde's side are keen on a reunion with the 22-year-old. "I would like to finish my career at Barça", Messi said to ESPN.

As reported by Spanish radio show El Larguero, the new deal won't be signed until after 30 June, for accounting reasons, with the related costs being booked next season.

Throughout all competitions, the global star netted 54 goals, but it still was not enough to help them capture La Liga or Champions League glory.

Messi did help his club to a Copa del Rey success, the fifth of his career with the club, but he will want to add to his eight leagues and four Champions Leagues over the next five years.

This means Messi will be at the Catalan club at least until 2021 and his new deal will include a release clause of €400m (£347.2m, $450m).

The La Liga outfit finished behind Real Madrid in the league, while were knocked out of finalists Juventus in the Champions League quarter-final.

"[Staying with Barca] is what I have always wanted, what I have always dreamt of".
