Lionel Messi extends his Barcelona contract till the 2021 season crushing many fans’ hopes of him moving to another club in the future! Born on 24th June 1987, in Rosario, Argentina, Messi was diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency which was a condition that stunted growth and required expensive medical treatment. Aware of his amazing talents, Local club River Plate were interested in signing Messi but didn’t want to pay for his medical treatment. However, Messi was given a trial with Barcelona, and coach Carles Rexach was so impressed that he offered Messi a contract written on a paper napkin which also included paying for Messi’s treatment in Spain. Messi moved to Barcelona with his father and became part of the prestigious FC Barcelona youth academy only to become one of the greatest figures of the beautiful game and also showing his love and loyalty to the club that helped him when he needed it the most!
