Lionel Messi unwilling to sign Paris Saint-Germain contract extension

Lionel Messi unwilling to sign Paris Saint-Germain contract extension

Lionel Messi is apparently not willing to accept a contract extension in the French capital and is considering his future at Paris Saint-Germain.

At the end of the current campaign, the 35-year-old’s contract will expire, leaving his future in doubt.

Before the World Cup, PSG was certain that Messi would decide to extend his contract, but the success of Argentina appears to have influenced his choice.

Although it was anticipated that Lionel Messi would extend his deal with Paris Saint-Germain through June 2024, he may potentially decide to leave the Ligue 1 winners in the summer to embark on a new journey.

After winning the World Cup in Qatar, the lone major trophy missing from his cabinet, the Argentina captain is rumored to have changed his mind.

According to Spanish media outlet Marca, he wouldn’t be sufficiently motivated to pursue additional French championships or even another Champions League once he had accomplished the feat of winning the World Cup.

Currently, Barcelona is thought to be the front-runner to sign Messi. Messi would need to give up a significant portion of his salary in order to adjust to the Catalan team’s present financial circumstances and wage structure, though, in order for his return to be granted.

Several teams are on high alert as a result of Messi’s change of heart. According to Marca, Barcelona would dearly wish to retain their legendary No. 10, although other stories contradict this.

Messi’s return to the Camp Nou is “impossible,” claims a different Spanish site, Directo Gol.
If he moved to Argentina, as well as if he returned to Barcelona, Messi would have to accept a far lower salary.

It has been rumored that he may make a touching comeback to Newell’s Old Boys, the childhood team he left in 2000 to join Barcelona.

After winning the World Cup, Messi would enjoy returning home for a period of time in Argentina. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner may want to take a vacation before calling it quits on his record-breaking career because he has never played professional football in his native country.

Messi has already stated a desire to play in the MLS and has property in Miami, but Miami would not be able to match his PSG salary. The forward has been courted by Beckham and his fellow owners for some time.

Jorge Mas, a co-owner of Miami, stated in February: “Leo Messi’s abilities have not lessened; he remains one of the best players in the world.

We would be thrilled to have Messi join Inter Miami as a player and a member of our community if he departs PSG, and David has a relationship with him.”

In the end, Messi has several options available to him and is not in a rush to decide whether to remain at PSG or pursue a new opportunity.
