Argentine superstar Lionel Messi career with French champion Paris Saint-Germain has been average (PSG). He has struggled to exert the same dominating influence as he did with the Catalans for more than 20 years since moving to the French capital in 2021 from Spanish powerhouses Barcelona. Given his success, which has limited to a few domestic championships, he still needs to change the club’s fortunes in order to win the European championship.
It was reporte earlier this season that Lionel Messi had a verbal agreement for an extension as he enters the final year of his contract with PSG. But at the same time, despite the club’s financial struggles making it difficult for him to return, he has consistently been linked to a return to Barca, despite the club’s financial difficulties making it hard for him to return.
A report from L’Equipe suggests that Messi has chosen not to exercise his option to trigger a one-year extension with the Parisians and will be leaving the club. His future at Parc des Princes appears precarious, especially after PSG supporters heckled him during the team’s 0-1 loss to Olympique Lyonnais this past weekend (Lyon).
It will be interesting to see where Messi’s future lies, even though the French publication claims that he and PSG are on the verge of a “divorce.” Barcelona needs to drastically reduce its wage bill even though he is willing to accept a pay cut in exchange for his return to the Blaugrana. He has also associated with Major League Soccer (MLS), where Inter Miami is a member.
