The next few weeks promise to be crucial regarding Lionel Messi’s future at PSG, as the Argentine will be out of contract in June.
In form in recent weeks, Lionel Messi was eagerly awaited against Bayern Munich in the knockout stages of the Champions League on Wednesday evening. Like Kylian Mbappé, the Argentinian international was however discreet, muzzled by a Bavarian team that was tactically and defensively developed. In major European events, La Pulga has not been up to scratch this season, an observation that challenges Paris Saint-Germain when Lionel Messi will be out of contract in June. After the World Cup, the agreement was almost reached between the Argentine player and the Parisian club for a contract extension for a period of at least one year. Everything has been called into question and now it is difficult to know what the future of the player will be like, who himself maintains the vagueness about his transfer window.
Messi makes an extension at PSG his priority
A return to FC Barcelona is sometimes mentioned, as is a possible signing for Inter Miami in order to end his career away from the pressure of European football. Nevertheless, the Mundo Deportivo reveals to everyone’s surprise this Friday that Lionel Messi still makes an extension at PSG a priority to this day. A surprising information when we thought that the Argentinian had privately recorded his departure from Paris next summer. Everything could finally be relaunched but on the side of Paris, in particular Luis Campos, we want to be careful. Because the Portuguese dreams of building his workforce for next season around Kylian Mbappé. Luis Campos does not hide from his closest collaborators that he dreams of a PSG without Neymar or Messi. Therefore, Paris will not go out of their way to extend the former captain of Barça, quite the contrary. The Argentinian player’s financial demands could be prohibitive and push him to start, with PSG not having the will to make the slightest effort.
PSG must part ways with Messi according to Riolo

Good news according to Daniel Riolo, who estimated on the antenna of RMC that Paris Saint-Germain had to separate from Lionel Messi during the next transfer window. “At PSG, I don’t believe that Messi has a real motivation to play for this club, that he has a real attachment to this club, he came by opportunism. The worst part is that I don’t even blame him. He will have done two seasons, we have to move on. I almost want to tell him, for him “but go to Miami, go I don’t know where”. The end of Ronaldo made me desperate, I don’t want Messi to end the same way. Let him go somewhere to feast, in Miami, in the sun. But for PSG, it is not sportingly consistent to extend it. recorded Daniel Riolo, who hopes that Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi will not stop on the “bling bling” side of the Parisian project by extending Lionel Messi, which would be a big mistake according to the journalist. Already it will be difficult to get Neymar out, under contract until 2027, PSG must not miss the opportunity to part ways with Messi.
