The end of Lionel Messi’s contract is fast approaching and according to our information, Paris Saint-Germain have been working on his extension for several months already. But in the meantime the World Cup has passed by and the title of Argentina seems to have given ideas to Messi, who at 35 seems to want to be more important than ever at PSG.
It’s a brand new season that begins for the PSG, after the resumption of Ligue 1 and the cut of the World Cup. In just a few weeks the capital club will return to the Champions League with stars on fire, especially when it comes to Lionel Messi.

PSG are holding their own for Messi, but…
While his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo turned the page on great football by signing in Saudi Arabia, Messi seems stronger than ever at almost 36 years old. the PSG knows it, as we revealed to you on 24hfootnews.com, Luis Campos wishes to extend as soon as possible a contract which ends next June.
The World Cup changed everything
According to information from Il Corriere dello Sporteverything seemed to be closed for the future of Lionel Messi before the World Cup, with a new contract until June 2024. Sources familiar with the matter explain, however, that the world title would have changed a lot of things, with the Argentine who would now be in a position of strength and who would therefore like to review a few important points with the PSG.
Messi would like new guarantees
This would of course concern the salary, which currently amounts to nearly €30 million net per year for Lionel Messi. But Il Corriere explains that the seven-time Ballon d’Or would also like new guarantees from the PSG, particularly concerning the future of the Parisian project. This could particularly concern his role, even as his young teammate Kylian Mbappé is becoming more and more important.
