Lionel Messi to leave PSG this summer

Reports suggest that Lionel Messi, the star player of Paris Saint-Germain, is not willing to accept a pay cut for signing a new contract with the French club.

Although he was transferred from Barcelona to PSG last season, Messi’s performance has not been up to par, and it appears that his stay at Parc des Princes may not be long-lasting.

Despite prior indications that Messi would sign a new deal ahead of the World Cup, ESPN reports that he is not willing to accept a 25% pay reduction.

As per Fabrizio Romano’s, Messi’s potential return to Barca seems more likely now than ever before.

Although Messi’s departure is a significant setback for PSG’s project, the club could benefit from a bit more flexibility with Financial Fair Play by reducing his large wages.

PSG made a bold statement by signing Messi last season, and the club is undoubtedly disappointed that it did not turn out as planned.
