Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, informed PSG’s football adviser, Luis Campos, of his son’s plans to leave a few weeks ago.
Messi is no longer interested in life in Paris
According to BBC Sport’s Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, through his father, Messi informed PSG of his plans to leave at the end of the season. Specifically, a few weeks ago, Jorge told PSG sports adviser Luis Campos that his son would not renew his contract.
Messi’s recent scandal is likened to the last drop of water about the relationship between him and PSG. The two sides have almost no possibility to extend the contract. According to MailSport, two potential destinations of Messi after leaving Paris are back to Barca or to Saudi Arabia.
Prestigious sources in Spain revealed that Barca is seriously reuniting with Messi with a 2-year contract. Barca director of football Mateu Alemany opposed the decision to re-sign Messi, and he chose to resign. In Barca’s announcement this morning, Alemany will leave the Nou Camp on June 30.
If he no longer wants to play at the top and choose money, Messi can go to Al-Hilal. MailSport reports that this club can pay Messi more than Al-Nassr pays Ronaldo. Currently CR7 is pocketing about 200 million euros/year. Messi’s recent flight to Saudi Arabia also made many fans doubt that he joining Al-Hilal is a possibility.
Also because of the trip to the Middle Eastern country, Messi was banned by PSG for 2 weeks and did not pay during this time. The Argentine superstar will miss the match against Troyes and Ajaccio. But coach Galtier is not worried because Kylian Mbappe can shoulder the task of scoring, moreover PSG has created a safe distance from the rest.
