Paris Saint-Germain wants to extend the contract of Argentine striker Lionel Messi.
In the past it’s been inaccurately reported by some members of the media that there’s a clause in his current contract, that allows both parties to extend the relationship between the two of them, but this is false.

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has yet to receive an official contract offer, but the club is showing willingness to do so.
As you know, the contract of the player from Argentina expires in the summer of 2023, but the management of the Parisians has already informed the representatives of the player that they want to extend cooperation for one season – until 2024.
Messi’s idea is to wait for Qatar 2022 to be played by the end of the year. After that, he will need some time to analyze his future.
For Messi, it was the most profitable year for PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi since he took over the French team. The player earned $ 700 million, which was not before the arrival of the Argentine.
PSG believe that after the first season of adaptation, Messi will be able to show the bright game that he showed at Barcelona.
In addition, Lionel’s presence at the club is beneficial from an economic and image point of view – after the transfer of Messi, PSG signed 10 new sponsorship contracts.
