Already the end for Messi?


In just over four months, the contract linking Lionel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain will come to an end. For the moment, the extension of the Argentinian is slow to materialize.

Between Lionel Messi and the City of Light, has the time already come to say goodbye? It will probably be necessary to wait a few days or even several weeks before being fixed on this burning issue. But while the contract extension seemed to be on track over the past few months, things may well be reversed.

In its edition of the day (that of February 21, 2023), The Team announcement as well as “the trend” is not that the 2022 world champion will extend his contract with the Reds and Blues. If everything still seems possible, a departure of Lionel Messi during the next summer therefore seems rather possible. Two years after having settled down in the capital of France, the Pulga would already be heading for new horizons.

It remains to be seen what this hypothetical departure of the 35-year-old striker would cost. After a delicate first season, the seven-time Ballon d’Or shone at the start of the current financial year. Between August and December 2022, the native of Rosario seemed to have made his mark in France, very often showing himself to be decisive. This season, he has 11 goals and 10 assists in Ligue 1.

Since the return of the World Cup in Qatar, however, the former Camp Nou star often gives the impression of being less invested while sometimes showing genius. His match against Lille (4-3) illustrates these two faces well. Transparent for 90 minutes, he finally offered victory to his team with a superb free kick after additional time.

Against Bayern Munich, Lionel Messi will surely be expected at the turn. After a rather timid first leg, he can prove that he is still the immense player who has dominated European football for the past decade.
