Lionel Messi is expected to have concrete talks with PSG over a new contract in the coming weeks. Representatives for the two parties will be meeting within the next two to three weeks to iron out the details of the contract and finalise the new contract.
Prior to the 2022 World Cup, Messi and PSG had a verbal agreement to continue together beyond the 22/23 season. And after a victorious run in Qatar, he is expected to continue in Paris.
Lionel Messi to renew contract with PSG – talks to take place soon
The length of the contract will be discussed on priority, alongside an increased salary for Lionel Messi. The Argentine has performed remarkably well this season, and wants his new contract to reflect his contributions on the pitch.
As a result, he is expected to receive an improved offer from the French giants. PSG hope to keep him until his retirement, or at least for the next few years, in order to dissociate his identity with Barcelona.
Messi could be one of the few people to win the World Cup and the Champions League in the same season, as his side have a huge match against Bayern Munich in the Round of 16. He is not expected to retire from the national team yet either, and could feature in the next Copa America if he chooses to continue.
