Messi will become a free agent on June 30 when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires. As a result, the Spanish club is attempting to work out its financial situation to ensure that the Argentine has a return to Camp Nou this summer.
Some PSG supporters whistled at Messi during PSG’s 5-0 win over Ajaccio on Saturday at the Parc des Princes. As a result, it seems a separation is likely between the player and the French giants.
Will the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner return to the Catalan side? These next few weeks should become clear.
