Paris Saint-Germain aren’t happy with the comments made by Christophe Gaultier on Lionel Messi’s final game for the club.
- PSG not happy with Galtier comments
- Club tries to suppress rumours
- Messi could still extend in Paris
What is the news?
The management of PSG is not happy with Galtier’s statements during a press conference before their last league match of the season. The Frenchman said to the reporters present, “I’ve had the privilege of managing the best player of all time. It’ll be his last match at the Parc des Princes.” This seemed to confirm that Messi would be leaving PSG. However, according to the French champions, that is not true, and they are now actively trying to suppress the rumors. Sources at PSG claim that Galtier simply meant to say that it would be Messi’s last match for this season.
There is a lot of speculation about Messi’s future at PSG. His contract is expiring, and there are various rumors suggesting that he will leave the club. A return to Barcelona is among the options, but there are also reports that he has a mega-contract offer from Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia. However, the player himself has not revealed anything about his future, and a longer stay at PSG is still considered a possibility.
What will happen?
Clarity regarding Messi’s future is expected after PSG has played their last match. The Ligue 1 champions will face Clermont in Paris and hope to end the season with a victory. With 16 goals and 16 assists to his name, Messi has had an excellent season so far in the PSG shirt, and he only trails his teammate Kylian Mbappe in terms of goal involvement.
