As the football community anticipates the future of Lionel Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain, reports have surfaced with differing perspectives on his plans. With his current contract set to expire at the end of the season, fans and analysts are wondering whether Messi will renew with PSG or move on to a new club.

According to journalist Gerard Romero, sources close to the player indicate that Messi is not happy with Kylian Mbappe’s level of power within the team, and that his mindset has shifted towards a return to his former club, Barcelona, after winning the World Cup. Barcelona’s board and president, Joan Laporta, are said to be closely monitoring the situation.

However, journalist Fabrizio Romano argues that Messi will renew his contract and remain with PSG. Romano cites sources within the club who claim that negotiations are ongoing and that both parties are working towards a deal. He also notes that Messi has expressed a desire to stay with the club and compete for more trophies. Additionally, Romano suggests that there have been no changes in the situation and that Messi and the PSG board are set to meet in the coming days to finalize details.

As the season continues and the end of Messi’s contract approaches, fans and analysts will be closely watching to see how the situation unfolds. With conflicting reports, it remains to be seen what Messi’s ultimate decision will be, but one thing is certain, the future of one of the greatest players in the history of the sport hangs in the balance and there is a lot of speculation surrounding his next move.
