Messi, towards a battle between PSG, Barça and MLS in January

Since the beginning of the summer of 2022, there have been several claims in particular about Lionel Messi, 35-year-old striker who arrived at Paris Saint-Germain in 2021 after the end of his contract at FC Barcelona. This with a vague future since his contract ends in June 2023. There has been talk of a possible contract extension (mentioned again by The Team this morning) or a departure, possibly to return to Barça. This Tuesday, the journalist Fabrizio Romano made a new point in the Que Golazo Podcast. He explains that the Argentinian had 3 offers, from PSG, Barcelona and one in MLS, but he doesn’t want to choose right away.

Roman” He is only focused on his performance and PSG, where he is happy. »

“Messi received 3 approaches: PSG, Barcelona and an MLS club. But Messi’s response was: ‘I don’t want to talk now’. He is focused on the pitch, PSG and his most obsession is the World Cup. Discussions will begin in January. Messi does not give importance to image rights or salary. He is only focused on his performance and PSG, where he is happy. He will start meetings in January or February. But currently, no decision from Messi is expected.

Barça and PSG are determined to obtain a signature from Messi.

At Barcelona, ​​they are confident they can afford Messi’s salary. But the final decision will be up to Messi. Barcelona are confident. I’m sure they’ll go there and try for Leo. (…) At PSG, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Luis Campos and Christophe Galtier are in love with Lionel Messi and his impact this season. That’s why they would like to extend his contract. », words relayed by The 10 Sports.

This journalist is generally reliable, so we place some trust in his words. Even if there is no certainty during the transfer window without an official announcement. It is still quite clear that Barça is thinking of Messi, since he has mentioned him several times in recent months. And the Argentinian could be tempted by a return to “his” club”. But it is far from certain.

PSG also has its say with an interesting sports project and a successful adaptation today. Messi might wish to extend the adventure a little further if it continues to move in the right direction. There may also be the lure of adventure with MLS or another destination.

In any case, it seems like it’s too early to be sure what Messi is going to do. This is not the time for reflection The Pulga. The main thing is to succeed in the season, including the World Cup. Possibly his last. We will therefore have to wait to know the future of the Argentinian, without forgetting to savor his talent every week until then.
