Paris Saint-Germain reached a verbal agreement with Lionel Messi to extend the contract. It’s a verbal pact to continue together with PSG. No decision yet on the length of contract & salary, it will be decided in a new meeting soon. Al Khelaifi and Campos, working on it,” Fabrizio Romano has said
Romano says Barcelona made an approach to bring Messi back but they failed because Leo is happy in Paris and Al Khelifi pushed for a new deal for months.
Messi’s new contract will is likely to last for one more year. That would mean he stays with PSG until the summer of 2024.
The implication is that Messi will remain active until the next Copa America. Perhaps he intends to fight for that title too.
A Barcelona comeback for Messi as a player is all but dead in the water now.
