The future of Lionel Messi remains a topic of discussion in various football outlets. While pundits such as Jérôme Rothen believe Lionel Messi’s time at Paris Saint-Germain is over, that might not be the case.
TyC Sports’ Gastón Edul provided an update on Messi and while L’Equipe reported on Monday that the 35-year-old is “leaning” toward and exit, Edul paints a different picture.
Edul reported on Tuesday, citing sources, that Messi continues to negotiate with PSG. For the moment, does not negotiate with any European club. Furthermore, Edul expects another meeting in the coming weeks between the two parties.
Leo Messi negocia con PSG. No negocia -hasta ahora- con ningún otro equipo de Europa.
Se espera una próxima reunión con PSG en las próximas semanas.
Jorge Messi está en Argentina. Llegó el sábado.

The key word in the reporting is European club, as Inter Miami and a Saudia Arabia club could also be in the mix for Messi. However, if the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner decides to play in the old continent is over, he could look at the MLS side.
PSG’s performance in the second leg against Bayern Munich on March 8 at Allianz Arena will influence whether these talks proceed or they fall off a cliff.
