Britain’s ‘Reuters’ reported on February 2 (KST), “The upcoming weekend’s clash between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Clermont will be the last for Messi. He has 21 goals and 20 assists in all competitions. Messi’s departure has been heavily rumored.”
Coach Christophe Galtier’s comments have been a hot topic. “I had the privilege of coaching one of the greatest players in the history of football. This will be Messi’s last game at the Parc des Princes,” he said.
“I hope Messi receives the loudest support. He has been an important part of the team this year. Any comments or criticism are unjustified. Messi has always played for the team. It was a great privilege to be with him throughout the season,” he said of Messi.
With that, his chances of staying at PSG are over. There are two possible next destinations. Saudi Arabia, with its astronomical money, and Barcelona, where he could perform a last dance.
A move to the Middle East is expected to bring huge riches. “Messi has already received a huge offer of €500 million a year,” says global media outlet Goal.com. According to Spanish transfer market expert Gerard Romero, the offer from the Saudis expires on June 15. “That’s why Messi wants to make a decision about his future as soon as possible,” he explained.
A return to Barcelona is not out of the question. There are advantages to competing at the highest level. Messi reportedly wants to play in Europe before the 2024 CONMEBOL Copa America. That would give him the rationale to return to Spain for a beautiful finish. 안전놀이터
There is another stumbling block. Barcelona’s financial difficulties. It’s not much better than when he left Camp Nou two years ago. In order to bring in Messi, they’d have to get rid of some of their existing players.
“Barcelona”s financial restructuring plan has been rejected by La Liga. They have submitted a revised plan and hope it will be accepted by the league’s secretariat. Barcelona are in constant contact with Messi and have asked him to wait until Monday for a final decision. However, it may be too late as no formal offer has been made,” explaining the complicated situation.
