The future of Lionel Messi remains a topic of discussion and nothing will be resolved until after the 2022 FIFA World Cup as the Argentine wants to concentrate on his final tournament.
Messi’s contract expires in June 2023 and then the veteran forward will have to decide whether he wants to remain in Europe or perhaps head to the United States and join MLS side Inter Miami.
During an appearance on “The Football News Show” on BBC, Spanish journalist Guillem Balague remains adamant that Messi will stay at PSG past this season on the latest update regarding the 35-year-old’s future.
“PSG goes to Leo and says listen, ‘You have to sign today,'” Balague said. “‘For whatever reason, you have to sign today. This one plus one.’ Leo Messi will sign to stay at PSG. But he said to his entourage to PSG ‘I don’t want to think about it. Let’s do it after the World Cup.’
“Then MLS. They are also ready for him. I think his dad has been in Miami many times, has met people at the club and the intention is that he goes to Miami. But I think Sergio Busquets will get there next season. And I don’t think Leo Messi is ready to actually abandon the elite.”
