Start of the season with a bang for the Pulga
The contrast is striking. Last season, Lionel Messi was the target of strong criticism. Far from its standards FC Barcelona, the Argentinian striker also seemed to have difficulty getting used to the Parisian way of life. Since last summer, times have changed. La Pulga are already at 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions with Paris Saint-Germain. And after ? For now, the 35-year-old is under contract with PSG until next June. Nothing says that he will not pursue the adventure in France. Quite the contrary.
Messi, a penchant for an extension at PSG?
According to the Spanish press and Sport, the current trend would be for a contract extension for Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain. La Pulga seems to have really found its marks in the French capital, as well as with the reigning French champions. His thirst for titles would be intact, one of the reasons why he could stay at PSG. Of course, nothing has been signed yet and everything can still change in the weeks to come.
But obviously, Paris would indeed have a head start. Especially on Messi’s former club, FC Barcelona, apparently eager to bring him back next summer. Same observation for the Americans of Inter Miami in MLS, who would not offer a sporting challenge exciting enough for the Argentinian. A rumor of an extension which echoes that relayed in recent hours, evoking the wish of the Parisian leaders to extend the Pulga. With salary increase to the key. To be followed closely.
