Lionel Messi seems to want to check the competitiveness of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Global media ‘Goal.com’ said on the 10th (Korean time), “Messi gave a clear answer that the club has the ability to maintain the highest level after PSG recently lost to Bayern Munich and was eliminated from the UEFA Champions League (UCL) stage. He wants to receive it. Messi’s father is currently discussing a new contract with PSG general manager Luis Campos,” it was reported.
Messi left Barcelona ahead of last season and joined PSG as a free agent (FA). He reigned as a key player and icon for Barcelona for a long time, but after the end of his contract, he struggled with the club’s poor performance for several years. His final decision was to stay, but rather failed to renew the contract due to Barcelona’s financial problems.
In the end, Messi had to leave Barcelona. In his first season after joining PSG, he participated in 26 French Ligue 1 games and scored 6 goals and 14 assists, and spent a period of adaptation. And Messi has been showing off his true value all season. He has scored 13 goals and 12 assists in 21 French Ligue 1 matches so far, contributing greatly to the team leading the way. 베팅룸 토토
Messi’s contract with PSG was due to end this summer. As a result, various rumors began to circulate, such as rumors of returning to Barcelona and rumors of entering the US Major League Soccer (MLS). PSG, of course, wants to stay. In fact, it is known that the club has started negotiations with Messi’s father, Jorge, in earnest after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
However, I am still not sure about renewing the contract. PSG recently knelt 0-2 in the second leg of the UCL Round of 16 against Munich. The first leg at home was also lost 0-1, so advancing to the quarterfinals was frustrated with an aggregate score of 0-3. PSG also lost to Real Madrid last season, the first season Messi joined, and ended the competition in the round of 16.
According to ‘Goal.com’, Spanish transfer market expert Guillem Balague said, “Currently, Messi continues to listen to PSG’s offer. If the conditions are right, we will continue to accompany him. “I will leave if Kylian Mbappe leaves or if my financial capabilities are limited.”
