Paris Saint-Germain still wants to work seriously on the arrival of Lionel Messi, believes journalist Marcelo Bechler of TNT Sports Brasil. In fact, the reigning champion of France would have already made a contract proposal.
Messi runs out of his contract with FC Barcelona at the end of the season. Bechler already reported in mid-March that PSG wanted to put the finances in order: now it would have officially reported to the Camp Messi. According to reports, the 33-year-old superstar can draw for two seasons in Paris, with an option for another year. Barcelonas financially troubled is allegedly unable to compete with PSGs offer.
The left leg is currently engaged in a nerve-wracking title race with FC Barcelona and probably makes a decision about his future after the season. Last summer, he wished to get out of his lucrative contract — 555 million euros in revenues in four years — but after the departure of President Josep Maria Bartomeu, the cards seem to be quite different: Messi has flourished under Ronald Koeman and is doing serious with Barça to the prices.
However, Neymars presence could also be a factor. The most expensive footballer of all time was always happy with Messi at Barcelona and is about to renew his contract with PSG. Whether the club can afford to fish in Messi is another story: Kylian Mbappé may have to be sold in that case.
São 3 pontos importantes:1 – PSG oferece 2 anos + 1 de contrato. Creem que a proposta econômica é “inalcançável”. O project esportivo fala por si só: finalistas da última UCL e semifinalistas agora. Passando pelo atual campeão e o próprio Barça – com goleada incluída. https://t.co/cMFxcVLeCr
