Lionel Messi Contract Extension: Italian Press Reveals Salary Argentine Would Make Staying at PSG

The reported contract extension between Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain appears to be a matter of when and not if the two parties can reach an agreement. 

One of the hold-ups is agreeing on a salary (along with term on the contract), but La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Messi would earn €‎40 million per year if he extends his contract with the French giants. 

Messi remaining in Paris allows PSG to secure other partnerships, especially since the Argentine is coming off winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup, so there’s no doubt some companies will want to be along for the ride.

Furthermore, the veteran goal scorer is showing he’s still capable at playing at a high level and the salary that PSG would be paying isn’t for his name only. 

Despite a contract extension being imminent between PSG and Messi, MLS side Inter Miami continues to hold out hope that they’ll be able to land the footballer this June when his contract expires. 

“For us, the landscape’s not changed at all,” Neville said. “With any deal for any DP of the level you’re talking about is complicated, it takes time … Rest assured we’re working every second of every day to bring in the best players, and I think he’s one of the best.”
