PSG hope to extend the contract of Lionel Messi after the World Cup. Messi has a contract at PSG that expires in the summer of 2023.

As his football career winds to a close, everyone is curious about the immediate future of Argentine maestro Lionel Messi. There are many tales of the next stage of his football career. Messi is currently at Paris Saint-Germain on a fat salary, and many people tip him to land in either the MLS or one of the Gulf states.

Lionel Messi is in the final year of his PSG contract, and the pressure is on the former Barcelona forward to remain in the French capital. The focus is currently on the World Cup as La Albiceleste’s captain hopes to lead his team to win the tournament.

In Paris, there is quiet apprehension over where Lionel Messi will be at the end of the season. The club owners want to sort out his future quickly and are confident he will sign another contract to keep him at the club. PSG chief executive Nasser Al-Khelaifi believes Messi will sign another contract to remain in the French capital.

PSG confident of retaining the services of Lionel Messi

Perhaps only Cristiano Ronaldo gets more mentions than Lionel Messi. The two are opposites challenging for the title of the greatest ever. Both players are in limbo over their future. While Messi is settled at PSG and has a calmer situation, Ronaldo is clubless and seeking to sort out his future as quickly as possible.

Lionel Messi has said little about his immediate future. It is causing some apprehension at the Parc des Princes. The fear of losing the former Barcelona star is evident, despite the veil of confidence exhibited publicly. PSG chief executive Nasser Al-Khelaifi is confident the club will retain his services at the end of the season.

Lionel Messi signed a two-year contract with the Paris club. It expires in the summer of 2023. Messi is yet to talk about his future as his focus is on landing the World Cup. The silence of the former Barcelona forward has led to plenty of speculation over his future.

Other prospects for Messi

PSG know that Messi will not be short of takers when his contract expires in the summer of next year. Messi is currently with Argentina in Qatar, while PSG is working out a formula to convince the player that the Parc des Princes is the best place for him.

Inter Miami remain hopeful in convincing Messi to join the MLS, but PSG will give them a run for their money. Things are currently foggy, but more details on his future should emerge after the World Cup.

Messi has had a fine tournament in Qatar despite missing a penalty and losing to Saudi Arabia. He has scored three goals at the World Cup and faces a stern challenge against the Netherlands on Friday.

Sky Sports reports that Al-Khelaifi claims Messi is happy, and it shows with the national team. According to the PSG chief executive, if Messi is unhappy at PSG, it would show in his performance for Argentina.

Messi is not at his imperial best but has done well for Argentina. Al-Khelaifi revealed the club would sit down with him to discuss his future after the World Cup.
He said both sides are happy and should make for a good conversation.

Messi is 35 and probably playing his last World Cup.
