Despite Lionel Messi having an up and down first season with Paris Saint-Germain this season, the Argentine forward doesn’t have plans to throw in the towel on his venture in the French capital.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the 34-year-old will remain with Les Parisiens for a second season, and that decision is already made.
Despite the speculation regarding the future of Messi after the elimination in the UEFA Champions League and the booing that came after, it isn’t deteriorating his desire to stay.
Messi signed a two-year deal with an option for a third when he unexpectedly departed FC Barcelona this past summer. The Spanish club couldn’t extend his contract and be wage cap compliant with La Liga, so he became a free agent.
With a summer where his entire life is up rooted and now knowing the French league, Messi hopes for a better second season. PSG might lean on him heavily, especially in the goal-scoring department, if Kylian Mbappé decides to leave for Real Madrid when his contract expires in June.
