Nasser Al-Khelaifi provides an update on the future of Lionel Messi

President of Paris Saint-Germain Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said that the club will examine the contract of Lionel Messi issue in January.

Lionel Messi moved to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021 after Barcelona were unable to sign him to a new deal due to their financial difficulties. After a rough first season in the French city, the Argentine has regained his form.

The 35-year-old signed a two-year contract with a third-year option, but his future at the club is uncertain due to MLS interest. Inter Miami is in talks with Messi’s team about a prospective move and is prepared to satisfy his pay demands to make it happen, according to allfootballleague.

During the World Cup break, Al-Khelaifi talked to Sky Sports about Messi’s predicament and was optimistic about his future: “He’s extremely happy, and you can see that with the national team. if a player is unhappy, it will show in their performance for the national team.”

He continued, “He had an outstanding season for us, scoring many goals and assisting on many more for both the national team and the club.

“Accordingly, after the World Cup, we will all sit down together. However, both sides – our side of the club and his – are quite pleased, so we will discuss the matter after the World Cup.”

In what is likely Messi’s last World Cup, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is presently prospering in Qatar with Argentina, who are favored to win the tournament.

Before the game began, he had already contributed 12 goals and 14 assists for Les Parisiens in all competitions this season.
