Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain) has decided to stay in Europe. He had super-star offers from Saudi Arabia, but money wasn’t everything. He contemplates returning to Barcelona and extending his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Spanish daily newspaper ‘Marca’ reported on the 8th (Korean time), “Saudi Arabia’s dream has collapsed. We tried to get Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi to meet, but failed. Negotiations are not optimistic. Money is not everything to Messi.” .
The media said, “The Saudi government tried to give Messi a much larger amount than the annual salary they paid Ronaldo. The decision is yet to be made, but it is completely different from Ronaldo’s feelings.”
Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2021. He led the Paris Saint-Germain attack in a triangle formation with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. At the time, he signed a 2+1 year contract, but his existing 2-year contract ends at the end of this season.
According to the contract, according to Messi’s will, a one-year extension option can be used. Paris Saint-Germain made an offer to re-contract Messi, but he did not answer. He throws a question mark on building a team in the center of Mbappe and is contemplating staying. 메이저사이트

The vice-president of Barcelona sent a love call, saying, “I hope Messi comes back.” There are still financial problems, but the La Liga secretariat is negotiating how to recruit Messi within the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.
Messi is contemplating returning to Barcelona and remaining in Paris Saint-Germain with Europe as one option. The Saudi Arabian team is also taking a step back from signing Messi. ‘Marca’ pointed out, “Messi realizes that money isn’t everything and is approaching another player. He is trying to bring Sergio Ramos as Ronaldo’s partner.”
