Lionel Messi to leave PSG at end of season

Lionel Messi to leave PSG at end of season

The Argentine World Cup winner had an “agreement in principle” to stay another year. But neither the club nor the player is willing to sign the contract right now.

Due to financial difficulties, Messi is not confident that the club can compete at the top level of European soccer. The French champions prefer to concentrate on the development of young players.

He agreed to a two-year contract in Paris in 2021 with a one-year option, but that option will no longer be exercised.

It’s believed that his father, Jorge Messi, spoke with Luis Campos, Paris St. Germain’s football consultant, a few weeks ago.

The player thinks PSG’s spending might be constrained in order to follow Financial Fair Play regulations next season. They are endangering the caliber of their team.

Messi’s recent reluctance to sign a new contract has angered PSG’s Qatari owners, who think his silence was a sign he didn’t want to stay.

Due to his unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, the 35-year-old was given a two-week suspension by PSG.

Barcelona and Messi would like to bring the forward back to the Nou Camp. But a transfer back “home” seems increasingly unlikely as the La Liga leaders struggle financially.

Additionally, he has interest from Inter Miami in Major League Soccer and a staggering offer of about 400 million euros (£354 million) to play for Al-Hilal for a calendar year in Saudi Arabia.

Messi believes he can compete at the Camp Nou for another season even though a transfer to Barcelona seems unlikely. He’s hoping to win a fifth Champions League trophy. However, his options are becoming more and more limited as a result.

Messi led PSG to the Ligue 1 championship with 31 goals and 34 assists in 71 games across all competitions.

With five games remaining and a five-point lead over Troyes and Ajaccio, PSG will be without him. They attempt to win their ninth league championship in 11 years.

Messi, who scored 672 goals in 778 games for Barcelona, left the Nou Camp in 2021.

After Argentina won the World Cup in December, he is the favorite to win an eighth Ballon d’Or in October. It would be three more than any other player.
