As the summer transfer window approaches, Lionel Messi’s future is still up in the air as he must decide whether to remain at Paris Saint-Germain or go back to his cherished Barcelona
The Ligue 1 champions in Paris want the 35-year-old to sign a new deal before the end of the current season. There hasn’t been an obvious development since PSG’s sporting director Luis Campos announced last month that the club is in negotiations to extend Messi’s contract.
Barcelona wants the World Cup champion to come back, and the La Liga heavyweights are in touch with Messi’s team to talk about a possible comeback, according to the Catalan club’s vice president Rafael Yuste.
Messi is still one of the greatest players in the world of football, if not the best, and the World Cup champion could be a huge asset to Barcelona. Is dropping the Argentine into that a smart plan, though, given how well the Catalan club has performed in domestic competitions this year and how the team is progressing as a whole?
In 32 games this season, the World Cup winner has scored 18 goals and given another 17 assists, not counting his outstanding play for Argentina.
Messi’s football destination for the upcoming season is still unknown, but he is likely to remain in Europe because it will keep him in the best condition possible for the Copa America in 2024.
