Lionel Messi’s future is still under a huge question mark. At the moment, all we know is that the Argentine won’t leave the club during the January transfer window but in six month’s time, his contract with Barcelona will come to its end and then, he’ll be free to leave wherever his heart desires.
We also know that Paris Saint-Germain are one of the contenders for his signature as the French titans are serious about creating a superteam and essentially reuniting Leo with Neymar Jr.
The Brazilian is also keen on that. In an interview not that long ago, he talked about wanting to play with Messi one more time in his career and according to Fabrizio Romano, who discussed the matter on his Here We Go podcast, PSG’s star is very serious about that.
However, given Barcelona’s dire financial situation, the only way Ney’s wish comes true is if Messi himself decides to join the Parisiens in the summer.
It would be highly unlikely for the Catalans to reverse their misfortune by the time summer rolls in to such an extent they have enough money to pursue one of world’s most expensive footballers.
Still, if PSG and especially Neymar are serious about their intentions as Romano suggests and Messi doesn’t change his mind about leaving, there is a possibility we see Leo in a different kit come summer time.
Let’s hope the new president, whoever he may be, comes prepared with a strong sporting project.
