Paris Saint-Germain is keen to keep Lionel Messi at the club if his contract expires at the club
However, Marca has reported PSG has entered a contract extension negotiation with Leo Messi’s camp
In the past, it’s been inaccurately reported by some members of the media that there’s a clause in his current contract
Moreover, that allows both parties to extend the relationship between the two of them, but this is false.
Messi hasn’t been presented with an official contract offer yet, but the club is showing its willingness to make it happen
Barcelona manager Xavi is keen to reunite with Messi at Camp Nou if his contract expires with PSG in the summer of 2023
But PSG is set to put the club on another hold if Messi extends for another additional year at the club
Will Lionel Messi extend his contract with PSG?
The Argentinian star and his team think it’s too early in the year to have a definite response, especially given that there’s been no offer presented yet.
The idea of Messi is to wait until after the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, which will be played by the end of the year.
Afterward, he will take some time to analyze his future.
He wants to see where he is from a physical point of view, how’s his motivation going forwards, and his state of mind.
During his first year with the French team, Messi had a rough start. Mainly due to his adaptation process and several injuries, including Covid-19 and its subsequent repercussions.
With PSG, Messi managed to only play 10 games in a row, something unheard of during his time at Barcelona.
Messi is already training in Paris ahead of the new season, even cutting his vacations a week short to start with his workout regime.
PSG’s first game of this season will be on July 31st, when they face Nantes for the French Super Cup, while Ligue 1 starts just a weekend later.
