Paris Saint-Germain remain eager to lure Lionel Messi into Ligue 1 after the end of the season. PSG are said to have made a contract offer to the Argentine.
According to the Brazilian journalist Marcelo Bechler from the TV broadcaster TNT Sports Brasil Paris Messi offers a two-year contract. In addition, an option for a third year is to be integrated.
According to Bechler, who revealed Neymar’s transfer from FC Barcelona to PSG in 2017, the offer is “out of reach” for other clubs. Therefore, those responsible think they are in pole position.
PSG superstar Neymar should also make the move to Paris palatable to Messi. The two South Americans would be reunited after their successful time together at FC Barcelona. In return, Neymar would allegedly give his shirt number 10 to “La Pulga”.
At FC Barcelona, on the other hand, it is still assumed that the 33-year-old will stay with the Catalans. The Catalan public broadcaster TV3 according to the new Barca president Joan Laporta has already met with Messi’s father Jorge.

Barca are still hoping for the good relationship between Messi and Laporta, who was re-elected president of FC Barcelona in March. The Argentine had repeatedly expressed severe criticism of his predecessor Josep Maria Bartomeu.
