After being eliminated in the Champions League, PSG need to prove to Lionel Messi that their project is still invested, their ambition is still big enough in the continental arena.
Guillem Balague’s source from BBC confirmed: “PSG must confirm to Messi about the proposed salary and contract length. Messi is listening and will continue to stay if it feels right. But he also has his conditions. Messi wants to see PSG still a strong and competitive team.”
“Things that could influence Messi’s decision are if Kylian Mbappe goes, if Qatar stops being interested in the club, if financial constraints force PSG to sell players or PSG cannot meet the maximum financial limit. minimum to keep him,” the journalist concluded.
According to Goal, Leo’s ability to renew his contract is not guaranteed. But more importantly, the former Barcelona star still wants to fight at the highest level. At this time, “El Pulga” has no intention of returning to his hometown to play for Newell’s Old Boys.
In the second leg against Bayern on March 9, Messi could not create a mutation in front of the opponent’s defense. The 35-year-old striker was blocked by Alphonso Davies, Leon Goretzka and Matthijs de Ligt, unable to help PSG come back from the 0-1 loss in the first leg, thereby losing the final score 0-3.
After more than a decade of investing in the Paris capital team, Qatar’s owners have not yet enjoyed the joy of winning the Champions League. For Messi himself, the disappointment of being eliminated early in this arena may make him decide not to renew his contract with PSG. Both sides’ current contracts expire next summer.
