After Kylian Mbappé last May, will PSG also succeed in extending Lionel Messi’s contract? According to the revelations of the Parisian this Monday evening, the club of the capital would already be working on the financial aspect of the file to achieve its ends. While the seven-time Ballon d’Or is tied until next June with the French champion (note: plus one optional year), the current L1 leader would keep him back for one more season, i.e. until June 2024. The addition of a new optional year should not be ruled out, specifies the daily.
While La Pulga’s annual salary amounts to 41 million euros net, Paris Saint-Germain is looking for the right financial formula to stay in the nails of Financial Fair Play. The Parisian thus adds that the idea of ”prolonging his end of career in Paris would not be to displease” to Lionel Messi. For his part, the journalist Fabrizio Romano announced in early October that the Argentinian should decide his future in 2023 and that he had not, for the time being, received any official proposal.
Arrived free in the summer of 2021, Lionel Messi had a “difficult” first year on an individual level, despite winning the title of champion of France. Since the start of the 2022-23 financial year, the 2014 vice-world champion has been living again under the Parisian colors as evidenced by his performances and statistics: nine goals and ten assists in all competitions. A renaissance that prompted the Parisian management to quickly consider its future.
