Paris Saint-Germain are in the ‘pole’ position to keep Lionel Messi beyond 2023, according to Mundo Deportivo’s Fernando Polo
The Parisians’ chances to extend the Argentine’s current deal are valued at 90 per cent.
Messi himself is looking forward to playing at a ‘top’ level for a few more years. He is also satisfied with the life in Paris.
As for his potential Barca comeback, this option is very unlikely for now. Only a call from Joan Laporta could turn things around; anyway, Messi is said to be frustrated with how his Blaugrana situation was handled by the president.
The 35-year-old will make the final decision on his future when the new year begins.
