Update On Lionel Messi Contract Talks With PSG
It’s just months to June and already, talks are underway over Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine international had signed a deal with PSG from Barcelona in 2021 and his contract is expected to expire by June this year.
If he should fail to get another contract with the club, then he would become a free agent and can leave for any other club of his choosing during the transfer window. But where will Messi be going in June? Would he remain at PSG?
Well, if current reports are anything to go by, then the club is interested in retaining him beyond June this year. According to multiple reports, PSG sporting director Luis Campos is currently in talks with the player to finalise an extension of his stay with the club.
These reports emerge amid claims that Barcelona was interested in having the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner return to Camp Nou. Actually, Messi would have stayed put at Camp Nou, even reportedly accepting a pay cut at some point, but things didn’t eventually work out and he had to leave.
It remains to be seen if he would eventually agree wi an extension with PSG. A continuation will especially please the club’s fans.
