Lionel Messi, the World Cup MVP for Argentina, has one requirement that Paris Saint-Germain must meet before he can sign a new deal with his club.
Although there has supposedly already been a verbal understanding between the 35-year-old and the club on a future contract extension, nothing is yet official.
PSG can either activate his one-year extension or offer him a new deal with the possibility of an additional year’s extension.
Messi’s advisors have reportedly told the Perisian people that the World Cup winner will no longer be paid much less than Kylian Mbappe, according to Sportskeeda.
Yet, the club is unwilling to give in to the player’s demands, therefore a transfer outside of France is a possibility.
In January 2021, Messi transferred from Barcelona to PSG after the Catalan giants were unable to extend his contract because of La Liga’s wage ceiling regulations.
Since then, Messi has played 64 times for PSG, contributing 32 assists and 29 goals.
