Lionel Messi offered PSG contract extension amidst rumors of a Barcelona return

Despite Barcelona’s public remarks regarding his return, the contract of Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain expires next summer, and a contract extension seems more plausible.
 
According to reports, PSG has extended a contract offer to Lionel Messi as they try to derail Barcelona’s aspirations of a comeback. But for the time being, it appears that he is still unsure about what to do.

Regarding a potential return to Barcelona, Lionel Messi has not spoken to the club, as Paris Saint-Germain is hoping to extend his contract.

However, Barca’s economic vice president, Eduard Romeu, recently stated that a stunning return to the Camp Nou for the Argentine might be feasible. Messi left the Catalan giants for PSG on a two-year contract a year ago.

Romeu’s remarks came after similar support from Joan Laporta, the club’s president, and Barca manager Xavi Hernandez.

Messi’s potential dramatic return to the club has been hyped up by all of them, but their strategy behind the scenes appears to be at variance with their public position.

As things stand, Messi hasn’t heard from anyone at Barcelona about the possibility of a comeback, and as Marca noted, their relationship is chilly and distant.

The Argentine is still bitter about how he left the club a year ago because he believed the board had misled him and did not like how the incident was handled.

There would need to be adjustments at Barcelona both on and off the field for there to be a scenario in which the 35-year-old would choose to return.

Barca would need to discover more revenue sources in addition to this personal roadblock before adding the Argentine superstar back to the team.
In actuality, it seems more likely that Messi will extend his contract with PSG.

He has been given a new contract at the Parc des Princes on his present terms for an additional year with the possibility of an additional season, according to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

Despite Romeu, Barca’s vice president of economics, saying to El Mati de Catalunya Radio that it would be financially feasible because if he returned, it would be as a free agent.

“However, the choice must be made by the athlete and the coaching staff. Making those judgments isn’t in line with who I am, but it is a possibility. despite the fact that it is not in my budget.” He added.

This comes after remarks from club president Laporta, who spoke more forcefully about Messi’s potential return:

“We have a moral debt with him in this way. We want him to finish his career wearing a Barça shirt and to universal acclaim.”
