Lionel Messi, despite extensive uncertainty about his future, will reportedly remain with Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Since joining PSG from Barcelona last summer, the 34-year-old has scored seven goals and provided 11 assists in 26 outings.
Messi was recently booed by a portion of his French club’s supporters, and reports have surfaced that his father has spoken to Barcelona about a possible return to Camp Nou.
Despite a lackluster first season in Paris, the Argentina international does not intend to seek a move at the conclusion of the season, according to Marca.
According to the source, Messi will remain with the Ligue 1 club for the remainder of his contract year before departing on a free transfer in June 2023.
When questioned whether the South American may return to the club before the conclusion of his career, Barcelona manager Xavi stated that ‘the doors are always open’ at Camp Nou.
Messi amassed 672 goals and 303 assists in 778 games for Barcelona before departing on a free transfer owing to the club’s financial difficulties.
