Two versions circulate in Paris Saint-Germain about the future of Lionel Messi.
Will Lionel Messi still be a Paris Saint-Germain player next season? The ball is in the court of the player, who will be out of contract next June, and who can therefore freely choose his next destination. A few weeks ago, the 2022 world champion looked set to stay, but the trend of a return to Barcelona has gathered steam in recent weeks.
But does PSG, for its part, also want to continue the adventure with Messi? The question did not arise a few months ago, but doubt is now allowed after the elimination in the Champions League against Bayern. The Argentinian performs well in Ligue 1 (8 goals and 4 assists in 2023), but he was not up to the task in C1, where he was the symbol of the lack of athletic commitment of Christophe Galtier’s men.
As a result, PSG are now wondering if it would not be better to rebuild the team without Messi. Le Parisien even indicates that the club from the capital is letting the rumor run that the sevenfold Ballon d’Or would no longer be part of its plans for next season. However, on the side of Doha, we continue to assure the opposite to the entourage of the player, despite discussions at a standstill for a new contract. Obviously, a lie is circulating on the side of PSG. But which one?
