Reports in several centers and senior media outlets in Europe claim: Leo Messi has agreed on a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentine star, who ends his contract at the end of the season, extended his contract for at least one more season, and will wear the uniform of the French champions in 2023/24 as well, in great news for PSG, its fans and managers, which comes just days after Messi led the Argentine team to victory in the World Cup and established his status as the best footballer in the world, and perhaps the best of all time.
The deal has not yet been signed, but was closed in front of Messi's father, Jorge, who acts as his agent and verbally approved the contract extension.
Recently, it was reported that Leo Messi is on the verge of closing at Inter Miami, and may leave for the USA for a huge ten-year contract with David Beckham's team, but in "Le Parisien" they report that "for Messi, PSG gives him the two most They are important to him - Messi's family is good in Paris, and the team gives him the opportunity to continue playing in the top European league."
Great news for Parisians.

The 35-year-old Messi knows that, in addition to a huge salary, PSG also offers him ideal conditions - and a team of stars alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar who might this year be able to win the Champions League and give him the eighth Ballon d'Or in his career.
In addition, his family has adapted to the city, and he will not want to move his children to a new place again.
Barcelona fans also hoped that Messi might return for another round with his youth team, but Barca's financial situation does not allow it to even dream of it, despite the statements of president Juan Laporte.
According to the journalist Fabrizio Romano, "The length of the contract or the salary have not yet been decided, only Messi's desire to stay, and the parties are sure that the terms will be concluded to the satisfaction of the parties... Inter Miami never really negotiated with him, and neither did Barcelona," according to him, "unlike S.Z., which has been pushing for this for months, and succeeded."
