Potentially free at the end of the season, the attacking midfielder of Paris Saint-Germain Lionel Messi, back to a good level, logically arouses interest. While the reigning French champion is already working to retain him, FC Barcelona embodies a real threat to PSG.
Lionel Messi is already coveted.
What future for Lionel Messi? After a mixed first year at Paris Saint-Germain, the attacking midfielder has made a superb start to the season and is in excellent physical condition at the age of 35.
Currently, the Argentinian international is at the end of his contract next June, despite the possibility of activating an option for an automatic one-year extension in Paris.
PSG has already made its offer
But to retain the former FC Barcelona player, PSG does not rely on this clause, which can be activated by the native of Rosario. Indeed, according to information from Cadena SER radio, the reigning French champion has already contacted the clan of the sevenfold Ballon d’Or to offer him a new lease: an additional year, plus an optional second.
And to seduce him, Paris offers him unchanged salary conditions with 30 million euros per year! A strong message from the Parisian leaders, who very quickly reaffirmed their great confidence in him despite an average 2021-2022 financial year. In this way, the PSG also shows the muscles on this file compared to its possible competitors and in particular the Bara, which cannot compete on the financial level.
A personal business for Laporta
Despite this economic reality, the Blaugrana remain the most serious threat to Ile-de-France residents. Moreover, the media El Peridico ensures this Friday that the Catalan president Joan Laporta has still not digested the departure of the South American and wants to personally take charge of the discussions with his ex-player in order to convince him to return. Unsurprisingly, Bara is counting on Messi’s attachment to the club to make him want to return.
A personal business for Laporta, which gives absolute priority to this file. For his part, the star refuses to worry about his future before his next big goal: the 2022 World Cup with his country. Paris and Barcelona will therefore have to wait…
