PSG doubts Lionel Messi
DBasia.news – News regarding Lionel Messi’s future at PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) is starting to enter a new chapter. The French giant are currently hesitant to extend La Pulga’s contract.
As is known, Messi’s contract with PSG will expire in the summer. Until now, the two parties have not reached an agreement to continue with their cooperation.
PSG officials had emphasized their determination to withstand Messi’s departure. Contracts with tantalizing value are ready to be offered.
However, the situation changed after PSG were eliminated from the Champions League. Les Parisiens’ moves were stopped in the last 16 as they were defeated by Bayern Munich 0-3 on aggregate.
The situation got worse after PSG defeated Rennes with a score of 0-2 in the 2022-2023 Ligue 1 continuation, Sunday (19/3). Even though Christophe Galtier’s team appeared for their fans.
In that match, Messi was again unable to show his magical power. This made him be mocked by PSG fans.
According to reports from L’Equipe, PSG officials are starting to have doubts about continuing the process of negotiating Messi’s contract extension. The fans’ response to the match against Rennes was one of the considerations.
They are worried that Messi’s survival will divide PSG fans into two sides. Moreover, the player’s performance has been disappointing in the last few matches.
Messi has reportedly turned down PSG’s initial offer. The Argentine superstar wants his salary to be on the same level as Kylian Mbappe.
With the latest situation, it’s not a surprise if Messi finally leaves PSG at the end of the season. Barcelona are known to be trying hard to repatriate him to Camp Nou.
