When his contract with PSG expires in the summer, Lionel Messi may leave as an unrestricted free agent. However, he intends to reject any new contract offers from the Ligue 1 winners, according to Beteve in Spain via Miquel Blazquez.
And if that were the case, Messi would be a free agent after the current campaign. Despite winning the title, Messi, 35, had a difficult first season at the Parc des Princes.
He had his lowest goal total since joining Barcelona regularly in 2005–2006, with just six league goals. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has four goals in eight appearances so far this season, and Christophe Galtier’s team leads the standings by two points.
After his problems, Messi stated he was finally enjoying his sport again after scoring a beautiful chip while on international duty last weekend. “I feel terrific, I feel different from last year,” the former Barcelona captain exclaimed. I anticipated it would go this way.
“I feel more at ease with the squad, the locker room, my teammates, and the game. I’m starting to appreciate it again now that I feel great again. Messi was even rumoured to be returning to Barcelona last season, but SunSport has learned that he has always wanted to uphold his two-year contract with PSG and would stay until at least 2023.
However, the Catalan giants will undoubtedly make every effort to entice their record-breaking ex-forward back to the Nou Camp on a free transfer. Because the club could not afford to extend his contract, Messi was forced to leave Barcelona in tearful scenes.
The athlete was willing to accept a significant wage cut to stay, but due to Spanish employment legislation and LaLiga financial restrictions, no extension was conceivable.
