The possibility of Lionel Messi reuniting with Barcelona is increasing because the Parc des Princes team does not seem to be eager to keep the Argentine superstar at all costs.
Mirror ‘s source revealed that PSG is in no hurry to negotiate an extension and sign a new contract with Messi. Instead, they are willing to let the 2022 ra World Cup champion go free in this summer’s transfer window.
Goal also added that President Nasser Al-Khelaifi is committed to developing PSG into a sustainable club, focusing on French talents in order to be less dependent on big-name stars. This move opens the door for Barcelona to recruit Messi. Goal’s source is remarkable because this is a newspaper close to Messi, also where he conducted a shocking interview in the football village after parting with Barca.
The Camp Nou team is ready to transfer Messi freely and give “El Pulga” a two-year contract. However, Leo will only receive a salary of about 25 million euros per season before taxes. This compensation is only 25% of his old income before leaving Camp Nou to join PSG in the summer of 2021.
Notably, there is a clause that allows the 2022 World Cup champion to unilaterally terminate the contract after the first season. Leo wants to return to “Blaugrana” before ending his illustrious career in Europe. Then he will consider offers from MLS or Saudi Arabia.
French media reported that PSG soon put two attacking players on the radar in the event of parting with Messi. Victor Osimhen (Napoli) and Randal Kolo Muani (Frankfurt) are two targets of the Parc des Princes club, according to Le Parisien.
The leader of PSG is said to be ready to part with both Messi and Neymar to build a collective around Kylian Mbappe. In the next summer transfer window, the Paris capital club will focus on recruiting many young players instead of welcoming expensive stars to compete as in recent years.
“I don’t know what will happen next … My future will be…”, Messi shared in an advertising campaign for Louis Vuitton on April 15, “I like to imagine, think. about what could happen. But I really don’t know what my future holds. Whatever God wants it to happen, it will happen.”
