As Barcelona’s star prepares a plan, Lionel Messi has yet to receive a contract offer from PSG.
As he comes to grips with his surprising exit from Barcelona, Lionel Messi is said to have yet to talk to PSG.
PSG and Lionel Messi have yet to agree on terms in what would be one of the most keenly awaited acquisitions in history. Due to the club’s financial difficulties, the Barcelona attacker was informed on Thursday that he will be forced to depart the Nou Camp this summer.
Messi’s rumored transfer to PSG has yet to be confirmed.
His contract with Barcelona expired on June 30th, and he has been a free agent since July 1st, but he was anticipated to sign a new contract with the Catalan giants.
However, the club made an unexpected announcement, confirming that its all-time leading scorer will leave on a free transfer.
Following his departure, he has been connected with some of Europe’s most prestigious clubs.
When the Argentine told Barcelona he wanted to depart for a new challenge last summer, Manchester City was considered one of the front runners, but a deal never materialized.
Now, a move to Ligue 1 in France appears to be on the cards for Messi, with PSG apparently leading the battle to sign him.
However, according to Sport, the 34-year-old has yet to receive a bid from the Parisians. They claim that no talks have taken place between the two parties, with Messi and his family still reeling from the news of his departure.
Messi has a total of six Ballon d’Ors and has played in a total of 767 games for Barcelona.
He’s also the club’s all-time best goal scorer, with 672 goals since making his senior debut in October 2004 at the age of 17.
He has won 10 La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues throughout his time in the Catalan capital.
The Argentine is coming off a terrific summer in which he represented his team at the Copa America last month.
Messi lead Argentina to the South American title, which they won 1-0 over hosts Brazil in the final.
It was his first international medal, as well as Argentina’s first Copa America victory in 28 years.
For the iconic Barcelona forward, the victory in Rio brought an end to years of agony.
Messi had previously lost for Argentina in Copa America finals and the 2014 World Cup. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
