Lionel Messi signed a two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain last summer after he arrived from FC Barcelona. Many assumed the 35-year-old would stay those couple of seasons and move on with his career with a switch to MLS or perhaps a return to the Spanish club.
However, transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that PSG wants to discuss a new deal with the Argentine, which Marca initially reported. Romano adds that PSG has told Messi they are ready to offer a contract until 2024 if he wants to stay.
Despite the capital club is open to an extension with Messi, the Italian journalist continues by saying that he has told the PSG star plans to think about his future “only after the World Cup.”
The former Barcelona star struggled with his goal-scoring in his first season with the current Ligue 1 champions. Nonetheless, Messi did become a good facilitator, registering 14 assists this past year.
It will be interesting to see how Messi adapts to new manager Christophe Galtier and whether the French tactician can help the veteran find his scoring boots in his second season at PSG.
