Lionel Messi is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time. He is currently facing a crossroads in his career. With his contract with Barcelona having expired at the end of the 2020-21 season, the Argentine forward is now a free agent and has been the subject of intense speculation regarding his future. However, reports suggest that Messi has only one offer on the table, and that comes from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
Messi’s future has been the topic of much debate since last summer, when he expressed his desire to leave Barcelona. However, the club was able to convince him to stay for one more season, with the hope of securing his long-term future at the Camp Nou. But despite negotiations taking place, Messi remained unsigned by the time his contract expired on June 30.
As a result, the 34-year-old is now free to negotiate with any club of his choosing. Reports have suggested that Messi has been approached by a number of top teams, including Manchester City and Chelsea, while there have also been rumours of a potential move to Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States.
Lionel Messi is thinking of coming back to Barcelona
However, according to sources close to the situation. PSG is the only club that has made an official offer to Messi. The French club, which boasts a star-studded line-up featuring the likes of Neymar. Kylian Mbappé. Sergio Ramos, is reportedly keen to add Messi to its ranks in order to boost its chances of winning the UEFA Champions League.
If Messi were to sign for PSG, it would reunite him with former Barcelona teammate Neymar. With whom he formed a deadly partnership during their time at the Camp Nou. The prospect of playing alongside the Brazilian forward. As well as Mbappé and Ramos, would undoubtedly be an attractive one for Messi.
However, the prospect of a move to PSG has not deterred Barcelona from trying to convince Messi to stay. The club’s new president, Joan Laporta, has made it clear that he sees Messi as a vital part of Barcelona’s future and has been working to put together a new contract offer that would keep the Argentine at the club for the rest of his career.
