Lionel Messi will sign a new contract with Barcelona and become the world's highest paid player in the upcoming months, according to the club's president Josep Maria Bartomeu.

As reported by Marca, the Barca president has insisted that the Argentine superstar will stay on at the club for the long term and the Catalans will speak with his agent in the near future. 

Bartomeu told reporters: "Messi's renewal has nothing to do with this. He is the best player in the world and in the near future we will be in touch with his agent, Jorge Messi, to make his son the highest paid player in the world."

This news will come as a blow to French champions Paris Saint-Germain who are are reportedly interested in taking the former Ballon d'Or winner to Ligue 1. 

Messi has been one of the world's greatest players in recent years and Barcelona fans will be extremely pleased when the Argentine ace pens a new deal with the club. 

2014 will be another huge year for Messi as the superstar looks to help the Spanish giants reclaim their position as the No.1 side in Europe. 

Messi will also be focussing on World Cup glory with Argentina this summer as his country look to win the major tournament in Brazil. On a personal note, Messi will be hoping to once again overhaul Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as the world's best player.
