The subject of Lionel Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain being renewed has had a new turning point after reports from Barcelona claimed that the little magician is not interested in extending his contract. Up until this point, it had been assumed that PSG would not let go of one of their star men after Messi’s contract comes to a close this year. However, Romero, a well-known journalist and streamer from Barcelona, stated something different recently. Romero stated that Messi’s contract extension with PSG is not so definite, and it doesn’t seem he will renew. He also added that although Leo Messi’s objective is not to extend his contract with PSG, things may change in the future. Let us look at the reasons why Messi’s contract extension looks doubtful.
Messi appears to have changed his mindset as a result of Argentina’s World Cup victory in Qatar. After winning the World Cup, he wouldn’t be sufficiently motivated to pursue additional French titles or even another Champions League. The Argentine star would no longer consider the sporting aspects as high after the only unfinished career goal had been accomplished and would now take other aspects into consideration.
Lionel Messi and Neymar endured jeers from PSG supporters last season as the league leaders faced Bordeaux during a particularly trying time under Mauricio Pochettino. On the other side, Kylian Mbappe received well-deserved cheers and applause. However, for any player, this would be sufficient to damage the relationship with the spectators. In this circumstance, it may be helpful to think back to Gareth Bale’s situation with Real Madrid, when the Welsh international struggled to find his best form after becoming almost completely cut off from the supporters. Leo has also received bad treatment from the French media. He received criticism for his poor play last year, and this year, he and Argentina are the targets of criticism after their victory against France in the World Cup final.
In contrast to Mauricio Pochettino, PSG coach Christopher Galtier has done a fantastic job of managing all three of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar in the starting XI of each game. Additionally, he never stops praising Leo, yet the information in the report implies that he does not get along well with Galtier. Moving away might be the best option for Messi because the coach is probably going to continue on after his current deal is up.
Kylian Mbappe came very close to signing with Real Madrid in the summer, but he ultimately decided to sign a contract extension with PSG thanks to their astronomical renewal offer. He significantly increased his player power at the club by doing this. The other players have taken issue with reports that the World Cup champion has the authority to influence moves, both in and out. Messi wants to leave the team in order to avoid having to face off against Mbappe again in the future.
Last month, Lionel Messi attained the pinnacle of success when he led the Argentine team to World Cup victory in Qatar. The South American giants defeated France at the Lusail Stadium in a nail-biting match that went to penalties after Kylian Mbappe’s futile hat-trick. The victory in Qatar served as Messi’s finest achievement, and it will be intriguing to watch what he accomplishes moving forward. His two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain expires this summer, leaving his future up in the air. Since Messi’s contract extension has not yet been signed, his future is currently unclear. In his first 2-year deal, Messi does have the option to extend his contract by one year. According to a number of media sources, PSG and one of the greatest footballers in history are in negotiations to sign a new two-year contract. There have been rumours of Messi’s potential return to Barcelona over the past few months. The World Cup champion has also been extensively connected with a move to the USA, namely to Inter Miami, a Major League Soccer team owned by David Beckham (MLS).
