Although many expect players to exit and significant changes to come to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, none of that will include Lionel Messi. TyC Sports reports that Messi’s position at PSG is to fulfill his contract.
The 34-year-old signed a two-year deal when he departed FC Barcelona last summer after the Spanish side could not fit his wages under the La Liga salary cap requirements.
Despite a tough season at PSG, Messi didn’t consider leaving. According to the Argentine outlet, Messi never thought about the possibility of ending his stay in the French capital. He also indicates from his close circle that there is no possibility of returning to Barcelona.
Messi has struggled to score goals and failed to convert the penalty kick against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. After their elimination, the Argentine was one of several players to be booed at him.
Furthermore, the French media hasn’t been too kind to him either. As a result, he will have to convince many that he’s more than capable of scoring and playing a vital role on the squad next season.
