Lionel Messi decides his future with PSG After winning the World Cup.
The 35-year-old is currently celebrating Argentina’s World Cup victory there.
The agreement Messi with PSG would have been due to expire the following year. Barcelona has eagerly welcomed the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner back to Camp Nou.
The Argentine has been receiving significant transfer rumors from Major League Soccer.
There was widespread speculation that the Argentine superstar would join the MLS. His Paris contract expires at the end of this year. But he ignored his club’s prospects in favor of the World Cup, which he duly won in Qatar last weekend.
Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of PSG, expressed his desire to keep Messi at the Parc des Princes immediately following the game.
Le Parisien reports that Messi has finalized a preliminary agreement with PSG to stay in Paris for an additional year.
The report claims a preliminary agreement made when Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, met with PSG’s management during the World Cup in Qatar.
Messi and his family are allegedly content in Paris, according to rumors. The forward thinks his chances of further Champions League success significantly increase by staying at PSG.
Le Parisien claims that Messi still has “discontent” toward Barcelona’s leadership due to his abrupt departure last year.
Messi ended up signing a free-agent contract with PSG. Barcelona blamed their financial difficulties for their inability to reach a new contract agreement with Messi.
Near the end of his rookie season, Messi received jeers from PSG supporters. It must have been due to their defeat to Real Madrid in the last-16 round of the Champions League.
The 35-year-old has, however, been in outstanding form for PSG this year. Before the World Cup break, he had 11 goals and 14 assists.
