The Parc des Princes has decided for Messi!


While his contract extension seems to be gradually slipping away, Lionel Messi no longer seems to be unanimous among PSG fans. Before facing Rennes in Ligue 1, the Argentinian received a not exactly warm welcome.

In just a few months, the contract linking Lionel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain will come to an end. And for the moment, the future of the 2022 world champion seems most uncertain. If the hypothesis of a contract extension has long seemed obvious, the trend has clearly reversed in recent weeks.

Since the return of the World Cup in Qatar, the former star of Barça would no longer be really sure of extending his adventure in the club of the City of Light. On the pitch, we cannot say that the seven-time Ballon d’Or is a string of high-level performances. La Pulga was particularly disappointed in the two confrontations against Bayern Munich.

PSG: Whistles for Lionel Messi

For many supporters, the 35-year-old striker’s contract extension is no longer taken for granted. Beyond his rather advanced age, the salary of number 30 weighs heavily on the finances of the Ile-de-France club. Last Friday, a crazy rumor came to complicate an already complex situation. According to several independent journalists, Lionel Messi would indeed have left a training session, not satisfied with the exercises proposed by Christophe Galtier. If the Argentinian’s father denied these “fake news”the reception of Lionel Messi against Rennes by the Parisian public was therefore eagerly awaited.

Finally, a few whistles also accompanied by applause and encouragement resounded in the Parisian lair when the announcer of the Park chanted the name of the little Argentinian. Note, however, that no other player received such treatment when the team rosters were announced. Only Christophe Galtier also had the right to a few timid boos.
