The summer transfer window is closed, but that doesn’t mean sporting advisor Luis Campos’ duties are slowing down. Until the January window opens up, the club chief will have to focus on contract extensions for various players, like Lionel Messi.
Messi and Sergio Ramos’ contracts expire next June; as a result, Canal Supporters’ Hadrien Grenier writes that the capital club needs to decide whether the two veterans will remain in the French capital past this season.
The Parisian club intends to open negotiations with the Argentinian’s entourage about a contract extension. Messi, for his part, would still like to wait before discussing a new deal with PSG.
When it comes to Ramos, Grenier says the situation is different for PSG as there’s no imminent decision over a new contract. Due to his injury-plagued 2021-22 season, the 36-year-old defender manages to continue at the start of the 2022/2023 financial year.
Much appreciated internally for his seriousness, involvement, advice, and figure as a leader, the former Real Madrid captain will have to show much more on the ground for an extension.
Campos will need to discuss a new deal with other players like Marco Verratti, Marquinhos, and Presnel Kimpembe. The club has begun molding the squad into his vision but will now need to keep parts already on the team before his arrival.
