As the star considers his future, the Lionel Messi camp addresses rumors of a return to Barcelona.
Barcelona announced on Friday that Lionel Messi’s 21-year stint with the club has come to an end.
Lionel Messi’s team has responded to reports that Barcelona has made a last-ditch offer to keep him at the Camp Nou. After a sad farewell news conference on Sunday, the Argentine is on his way to PSG after bidding his goodbyes to the Catalan club.
Barcelona has been unable to offer their talisman a new deal since their pay bill continues to exceed the budgetary requirements of La Liga.
To make room for the 34-year-old, high-earners Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann were placed in the shop window, but no team was willing to match their pay.
Even yet, until the club’s shocking revelation on Friday, there was genuine hope that something could be worked out to allow Barca’s best player of all time to stay at the club.
Since then, a move to PSG has appeared to be the most likely choice, while rumors have circulated that Barca made a last-ditch effort to save the marriage.
The savage Martin Odegaard decision by Real Madrid could determine the fate of Arsenal’s transfer chase.
Messi’s team, according to The Athletic, denies such an approach.
With the arrival of Paris, the possibility of the one club man, and probably the best player of all time, playing his final game in Barcelona is no longer a possibility.
Given the intensity of the past few days and Messi’s obvious love for the club, the possibility of a free transfer was not completely out of the question, but Barca never suggested it.
PSG are set to strike after a successful summer transfer window.
A two-year deal for over £20 million per season has apparently been tabled, with an option for a third year.
The transfer makes sense because it would bring him back together with former teammate Neymar, as well as countrymen Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, as well as Mauricio Pochettino.
Messi is said to have approached the former Tottenham manager about a possible transfer, and things have advanced fast since then.
With Neymar and Kylian Mbappe already wreaking havoc in Ligue 1 and Di Maria pulling the strings in the back, Messi’s inclusion would create one of the most terrifying attacks in the history of the game.
