PARIS: Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly completed an unbeatable three-year contract offer for Lionel Messi.
The 33 -year -old’s contract expires at the end of the season, and he has yet to sign a new contract with Barcelona.
After making a transfer application last summer before canceling it, many expect the six -time Ballon d’Or winner to leave Barca.
PSG are among the clubs that have the potential to sign the Argentine star who will be given the number 10 jersey owned by Neymar at this time.
The Brazilian striker has revealed that his contract negotiations with PSG are also nearing completion and he may be paired again with Messi.
PSG, run by former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, insists Messi’s presence will give him more chances to win the trophy again.
However in the Barcelona camp, strong speculation says Messi will remain there.
Barca president Juan Laporta said after Messi lifted the Spanish King’s Cup last Saturday – scoring twice in a 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao – he was confident the player would stay with the club.
Messi’s wife, Antonela Rocuzzo, has also reportedly started looking for a new home near Barcelona.
