Almost a year after his unexpected arrival at Paris Saint-Germain, Lionel Messi has had a year full of emotions. Surprised and sad to have been pushed out by the Blaugranasthe Argentinian was uprooted against his will before landing in France. Unsurprisingly, after more than 20 years at Barcelona, ​​the Pulga have struggled to adjust to their new life. Criticized by the French media because of its performance far from its stratospheric standards (11 goals, 13 assists in 33 matches, all competitions combined), the number 30 of PSG has undoubtedly experienced the worst season of his career.

It is therefore not surprising that his future was quickly discussed. Except that Messi does not intend to leave Paris before the end of his contract (2023).The latest rumors about his future also mentioned his possible arrival in MLS, to Inter Miami in a year. Messi would acquire 35% of the shares of the Florida club from David Beckham there and would wear the cap of shareholder-player. Quick information denied by his clan. While waiting to see if this American story is confirmed or not, the former Blaugrana wants to honor his last year of contract with the Rouge-et-Bleu.

Disappointed by Pochettino

Used throughout his career to be number 1, the South American has certainly had trouble blending into his new environment, but he intends to put the dots on the i. Better integrated into a locker room that he has learned to know over the months, Messi has forged some privileged links with certain elements such as Marco Verratti or Kylian Mbappé.

Aware that he had to change his role (less goalscorer, more passer)the Argentinian, who has a good chance of finishing in second place in the Ligue 1 smugglers ranking behind Mbappé, has only one obsession: win the Champions League with PSG. No question of changing teams for a player sufficiently marked by his summer 2021 change. However, flats are to be noted. In addition to the Park whistles which surprised him enormously, Messi would not really be on the same wavelength as Mauricio Pochettino. The newspaper explains that the ex-Culé did not flourish at the level of the game. With a Pochettino in the hot seat, Messi is following the file very closely.
