Messi's current deal expires next summer. Now PSG is eager to tie him down for two more years.
Messi initially joined PSG on a two-year deal in August 2021, with that agreement including the option for an extra year. The Argentina superstar helped the club to the Ligue 1 title in his debut season and has started 2022-23 in electrifying fashion, as he is still considered a vital part of the squad. PSG have informed Messi that they will offer him a new two-year contract after the international break as a reward for his performances.
Messi has been strongly linked with a return to Barcelona in recent weeks, while a potential move to MLS outfit Inter Miami has also been mooted. However, a transfer next summer is highly unlikely given no concrete negotiations have taken place with either club at this stage.
Messi is waiting until after the World Cup to make a final decision on his future, but it appears that PSG are in a strong position to retain his services through to 2025. The 35-year-old will be expected to play a part in the club's first game back against Strasbourg in Ligue 1 on December 28.
