“I feel good, I had a bad time before where I never managed to find myself. This year, it’s different, I arrived more at ease at the club, in the locker room and in the game. I feel very good and I still enjoyed myself. This statement by Leo Messi during the truce did not go unnoticed in France. After a delicate first exercise in Paris, the sevenfold Ballon d’Or is doing much better. He got used to his new life after years at Barcelona.
But what to do for the rest and the end of his career? His contract ends next June. It has a one-season extension option. At FC Barcelona, we are trying to bring him back. A media even assured that the Argentinian would not extend to PSG, while at the same time, this week, the Blaugrana economic vice-president explained that the Catalan club had the financial means to bring back the best player in its history. In France, we see things differently of course.
A 1+1 contract offered
According to the information disclosed yesterday evening on the airwaves of the SER padlock, PSG have submitted a proposal to extend the 35-year-old star by one season, plus an optional year. It is a very similar contract to the current one because it would be the same economic conditions, namely a salary of around €30 million per year. What seduce Leo Messi, who will take the time to think, maybe even wait for the World Cup, before deciding.
One thing is certain, however, Barça will not be able to match such a salary offer. This information is in any case in line with what Luis Campos said the other day on RMC. The Parisian leader wanted to see the Pulga continue the Parisian adventure started a little over a year ago now. The ball is now in the court of the player, who has never felt so well in France, and on the pitch alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappé.
