PSG chief provides update on Lionel Messi’s future

Lionel Messi is set to meet Kylian Mbappe and France in the World Cup final later today.


As quoted in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the PSG president addressed the situation, saying: “Kylian has just signed a new contract, and Leo’s lasts at least until the end of the season. Both, but in reality all of our players, are happy to play for PSG.

“Their most recent performances prove it, even before the World Cup. PSG have not lost a single match so far. And the women’s PSG, as usual, is doing very well.”

He added: “No decision on Messi’s contract will be made until next year. Club and player will do what is right and in the best interests of both parties. We are all very happy right now, which is great”

Messi joined PSG in the summer of 2021 from long-time club, Barcelona.

The Argentine went on to have a solid season, scoring 11 goals and providing 15 assists in 34 outings.

Such a record for the majority of players, especially at 34, would be very good. However, there were some that argued that Messi was not at his best.

In 2022/23, however, at the age of 35, Messi has hit the ground running. In 17 games for PSG, he has already scored 12 and assisted 13.
