The capital club has heard that the Argentine’s extension is very far from unanimous among the supporters. Therefore, the Parisian leaders are thinking about the evolution to give to the sports project.
🚨 Le PSG n’est plus si sûr de vouloir prolonger Leo Messi ! 🇦🇷⛔️
Le club a entendu que la prolongation de l’Argentin est très loin de faire l’unanimité parmi les supporters. Paris réfléchit à l’évolution à donner au projet sportif.

Having Messi alongside Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. has eaten a lot of the wage bill at PSG and prevented the French giants from adding more depth to their squad, considering Financial Fair Play is monitoring their spending.
As a result, it would be wise for PSG to move on from Messi and even Neymar if they can find a taker this summer and build the entire team around Mbappé.
