According to reports, Paris Saint-Germain is planning for next season without Lionel Messi, as contract talks for a new deal have broken down. The talks have been ongoing for some time, and while PSG believes that Messi wants more money, his camp denies that finances are the issue.

Paris Saint-Germain are now planning for next season without Lionel Messi.

Contract talks had dragged out since the World Cup, and at one point it seemed like an agreement could be reached. But now, it appears that Messi will be leaving the Ligue 1 side after a two-year spell. It remains to be seen where Messi will go next, but his departure from PSG is likely to generate widespread interest and speculation in the football world.

A return to Barca

Reports suggest that Barcelona is leaving no stone unturned in their efforts to re-sign Lionel Messi, who left the club after they were unable to pay his salary in a new deal. While rumours of a potential return have been circulating since his departure from the Nou Camp, a deal may not be straightforward. Barcelona has been exploring ways to bring Messi back since October 2021, with direct contact with his representatives ongoing. Messi’s current deal with PSG ends in the summer, and while PSG has an option to extend it by a further year, it can only be triggered with the player’s agreement.

Will Messi and Xavi reunite?

Messi’s father, Jorge, has reportedly been in constant contact with Barca officials and president Joan Laporta, who is working hard to get the deal over the line. However, La Liga president Javier Tebas has said that Barca must take many financial measures to undertake Messi’s registration, making the signing seem unfeasible at present. Nevertheless, there is still time for Barca to make moves to get Messi back, and the possibility of a return will likely continue to generate interest and speculation in the football world.
