In addition to Spanish central defender Sergio Ramos, Paris Saint-Germain are also considering an extension for Argentinian striker Lionel Messi, who is under contract until June 2023.
The same situation for Ramos
Lionel Messi made a solid start to the 2022-2023 season. In all competitions, the Argentinian striker Paris Saint Germain scored 4 goals in 9 games, for a record of 3 goals and 7 assists in 7 Ligue 1 games. On the other hand, during the first outing of Kylian Mbappé’s partners in the Champions League, the “Pulga” remained silent against Juventus Turin (2-1), a success won on a double from the French striker.
After a lackluster first exercise in the capital under the era of his compatriot Mauricio Pochettino, the former FC Barcelona player finally seems to be in top form under the orders of Christophe Galtier. So much so that the Parisian leaders are ready to make a strong decision about it in the coming months. According to information from RMC Sportsthe 2022 French champion is in reflection with a view to extending the 35-year-old star, and this in the same way as the Spanish central defender Sergio Ramos.
Under contract until June 2023
According to our colleagues, “the club is seduced by what it has shown in recent months” and is considering re-entering the native of Rosario, recruited free during the summer of 2021 following his departure from the Blaugrana, for lack of an agreement on the signing of a new contract. To be more precise, activate the one-year option included in the lease of Parisian number 30, under contract until June 2023. RMC Sports specifies that Paris Saint-Germain must nevertheless pay attention to its accounts – financial fair play obliges – before settling the file. Finally, talks with Lionel Messi should accelerate once the 2022 World Cup, scheduled in Qatar from November 20 to December 18, is over.
